There isn't anything that says we can't substitute

Listen 0.0.0.0:80

in the absense of _any_ Listen directives.  This might be more intuitive.

Of course, that doesn't lessen the need for the Listen 80 in our default
config!  If we don't provide that directive, and the user adds in the ssl
or pop config, then we are in _serious_ trouble.

Speaking of which, would it be good to make a seperate proxy.conf and
(within subprojects) pop.conf, mbox.conf etc?  I mention it because proxy,
in particular, adds alot of information to the httpd.conf that some users
never need to review.  It seems like it would 'lighten the load'.  Of course,
the same logic as ssl;

<IfModule mod_proxy.c>
    Include proxy.conf
</IfModule>

would be standard in httpd.conf, just as we suggest for ssl.
