Well....

I was hacking around with the idea that the selection of vhost is a hook,
rather than how it is now.  Basically, what I did was protect the vhost list
with a mutex, so you can add/delete (well not fully delete) vhosts.  Combine
that with a "global" logger (ie, piped logger to syslog-ng) and the access
and error logs are "created" on the fly as well.

In the end, it was way too hacky and I haven't thought about it much in well
over a year.



In pseudo config, like niq is suggesting, you could have something like:

<If HTTP_HEADER{Host} =~ cnn\.com$ || TCPPort == 8080>
   #cnn specific stuff here...
   DocumentRoot /htdocs/cnn
   CutomLog "|/usr/bin/logger cnn" my_format
   ErrorLog /var/log/cnn.error
</If>

Hmmmm....

Would just have to move a bunch of stuff to per_dir and make sure all of our
directory config creation and merging is very fast...

This IF/else stuff could be done in a module and not in core for testing
purposes.  Not quite where I'd like the config to be, but this may actually
be obtainable in near future.
