Subject Re: Advanced Mass Hosting Module

You and someone else said the same thing.  I currently have a setup where we
run several hundred vhosts (all individually specified) without issue, I'll
have to remember this if it ever grows to thousands.  Thanks.  With the lack
of a more powerful vhost-alias type thing, I'll probably have to vhost-alias
all the "standard" bare bones configs, and list out the anomalies
