Back when Dean Gaudet was around these parts, he used to shoot down
proposals like these with some regularity.  The basic argument is that
httpd.conf is a configuration file, not a programming language.  If you
need a programming language to generate your config files, there are many
preprocessors built for that purpose (eg. m4).

Of course, without Dean around, you might be able to sneak this in anyway
