well, the idea is not having to make _any_ changes to the
main config file at all. You simply add another file to
the directory and HUP the server and that's it. No
edits at all.

Personally, I like the concept very much. True, there are
ways of doing this 3rd party, simply by cat'ing the files
into a new httpd.conf file, but this method is very elegant.

It looked like it would fit in very nicely with 2.0. In fact,
it would be kind of cool to get away from the concept of a
master config file totally and replace it with an Apache
configuration directory (httpd.d). Course, we would need
to make clear that non-Apache conf files (like php.ini)
shouldn't go in there. Maybe a conf layout:

    conf/httpd.d:  Apache config file tree
    conf/misc.d:   misc config file locations
    conf/php.d:    location for php.ini ?

would be a nice way of organizing that tree. wrote:
