I think it may be time to re-think the logic of this configuration  
snippet in the perl-framework, since the directives contained in it  
are in the process of growing some additional options that may be  
varied across tests. For instance, the AcceptFilter directive and the  
protocol argument to Listen, but also the ServerName with the  
UseCanonicalName and UseCanonicalPhysicalPort.

Perhaps we're looking for a more generic way to specify a virtual  
host, like, in the module source file or conf.in,

<VirtualHost some_name [servername] [protocol]>
     ...stuff...
</VirtualHost>

Which would translate to:

Listen 0.0.0.0:aPort [protocol]

<VirtualHost _default_:aPort>
     ServerName [servername]? [servername]:aPort : aServername:aPort
     ...stuff...
</VirtualHost>

Where some_name would play the same role as today, and the new  
parameters optional for backwards compatibility.

Something like that? Perhaps more optional tuning knobs?
