Would it be possible to use something like fam (or kqueue on FreeBSD) and
have httpd notified whenever the config file changes? That would solve
part of the above desire without requiring the extensive changes needed to
go to a db/ldap system.

OTOH, what if config loading was handled by a provider module that could
then fetch the info from a file, db, ldap, whatever...
