IMO, we should try to move away from the Directory section. It is filesystem
specific and (slightly) hinders the move to repository independence.

That said: using a vhost as the granularity means that any requests arriving
at a vhost have a single user/group. If you make it per-Loc, then you're
going to need to start passing request handling between processes/threads.
Possible? Dunno. But certainly more difficult, I'd think.
