OK, well, if that's the official position, we need to change the docs. It seems
useful to me, however. If you want to move your installation somewhere else,
then ServerRoot would be the only thing that would need to change, rather than
having to change a bunch of variables throughout the file.

The person that mentioned this to me was building a custom install of Apache,
and wants to minimize the things that need to get modified by his script.
