            SSLEngine On

whenever there is a  <VirtualHost mod_foo> and mod_foo is available, it
is expanded into:
Listen $port_counter
<VirtualHost _default_:$port_counter>
    ServerName $servername:$port_counter

where $port_counter starts at the default 8529 and is incremented for each
VirtualHost.  <VirtualHost mod_foo_ssl> is expanded the same way, but only
if $ssl_module (normally mod_ssl.c) is also available.

the port number can then be looked up on the client side
using the module name.  t/protocol/echo.t for example:
my @modules = qw(mod_echo);

if (Apache::Test::have_ssl()) {
    $tests *= 2;
    unshift @modules, 'mod_echo_ssl';

for my $module (@modules) {

    my $sock = Apache::TestRequest::vhost_socket($module);

first time through, $sock is a socket connected to the port mod_echo is
listening on, second time is mod_echo with SSL enabled.

the routine that does the parsing/expansion for vhosts is
