Then it needs to be that - ie, the default config file. If we call it  
a basic config, and it differs from the default config file, as  
shipped with httpd, then the natural question is, why do they differ,  
and which one is "more correct". The trouble with having it be the  
default config, rather than, say, linking to latest svn of the  
default config, is that they will get out of sync.

I feel a little oogy about doing this at all. Folks *will* take this,  
and attempt to use it, as their default config. That needs to be kept  
firmly in mind when putting up something like this.

The most likely way for the world to be destroyed, most experts  
agree, is by accident. That's where we come in; we're computer  
professionals. We cause accidents.
