As another lurker on the list, I'd like to weigh in on having the
template conf files in conf/sample and named after the release which
created it, i.e. conf/sample/httpd.conf-2.0.40  (You could also use
conf/dist/* or conf/template/* or ...)

This avoids cluttering conf and keeps the template configs close at
hand for reference.  Apache conf files are large and they tend to
change subtly between releases.  It is really nice to be able to
compare differences.  Personally, I use the default conf files and
comment out what I don't want and comment in my changes explaining
the deviation from the distributed defaults.
