I had this on the cards quite a while ago, but have not got around to 
actually finishing it off.

The idea was a separate tool which would generate flat apache config 
files based on LDAP queries. The reason for the flat files was so the 
server could still restart and work even if the LDAP server was down. 
"Kicking" a server could be as simple as accessing a special URL, which 
recreates the flat config files and gracefully restarts the server.
