Agreed, mod_macro is *the* configuration module:-)

The argument in favour is that we do periodically get requests
for variable interpolation in various directives.  A general framework
would have some value.  But to be really useful, it'll have
to deal with both config-time and request-time interpolation
without confusing the hell out of the lusers.  And probably
other issues I haven't thought about.
