That's what I do too, but I do keep an eye on the number of virtual 
hosts I have, cause each one has an error and a combined log, that is 2 
file handles for each virtual host.  There is a finite number of file 
handles that the kernel can have open at once.  It is usually around 
1024.  So that limits you to about 500 virtual hosts in theory.  But 
many other programs make use of file handles so the number could be 
quite a bit lower in practice depending on what else you are doing with 
the machine.
