On a similar note, I would like to make suEXEC a lot more useful in several
other areas. Is this part of Apache still being worked on ? We want to use
it for our servers, which run about 7000 vritualhosts, and want each to run
the *global* scripts using the local names, and to reduce some of the severe
paranoia security checks. I already did some of this for 1.3.6, but we ended
up not using that particular patch, for a number of reasons. Should I just
work on this, or are there people out there working on suEXEC ?

(BTW, ObTopic, Oliver, consider using a Redirect rule instead. I sort-of
agree suexec should mind the Aliases, but a Redirect rule is more likely to
work ;)
