ok, I guess you guys figured out how to do it :)

anyway, if I can interject a few comments on the idea...

we already have a few files that get magical treatment: extra.conf.in,
extra.last.conf.in, modperl_startup.pl, etc.  I think the way I would do it
(from afar :) is to create yet another special case, maybe
httpd.extra.conf.in or somesuch.  advantages would be that it would follow
the approach we've been using, it wouldn't require an extra runtime
argument, and it could benefit from variable subsitution like all the other
conf files.
