There is nothing more to say. I fully agree to all comments from nd and
Joshua. I would be glad to have only short comments within the default
httpd.conf with hints to the documentation. And I also won't suggest
ScriptInterpreterSource registry by default. Users should really have
read the documentation at this point before they use this setting.
