I think you lost me too :)

Let's try to get in sync...

If the module defines its own server_config_create() which allocates
one, each vhost will have its own, and the module's
server_config_merge() can do whatever needs to for the members of the
config (pointer copy, shallow/deep copy, ...).

I didn't re-looked at the mod_ssl config code lately, I remember some
special treatment for main server config (re process->pool), but it
seems to me that each vhost has its own config, and that the merge
process issues copies (shallow?).

What I don't remember is some modifications of the server configs in
place in post_config, if that's the case it should indeed be preceded
by a deep copy sowehow...

Of course not, create/merge process per module can already do that, up
to the module to do what it needs (correctly).
