I am in total agreement in fact my guess would be that most
organizations will eventually split up the httpd.conf file to fit
whatever needs they have.  But I would imagine that no two organizations
split up the .conf file in the same way.  So splitting it up and
installing it in the way that the ASF likes it, just seems more
confusing than helpful.  But like Joshua said, "If you can suggest a
better compromise solution, I am very interested",  I don't have a
better suggestion yet so I will have to think about it some more.
