The old code was blowing away everything in the directory on my
machine.  BTW, the current logic is precisely what 1.3 does, which is why
I added it.  If you have an existing conf/ directory, the assumption is
that you have been using it to run Apache.

The situation that you are trying to protect against is most likely not
standard.  My question, is why isn't your automation just copying the
whole conf/ directory?
