Yeah. That's what I'm also trying to do some forward thinking on.

Right now, there's no "special setup" with regard to .htaccess handling. I 
would like to leave it that way if at all possible, while still being able 
to have the server handle "htaccess-like statements" on a server-wide basis.

I'm going to try the other suggestion someone else made about using 
"inherit" and see if that works because I do want to allow vhosts to 
control their own .htaccess files at some future date without me 
intervening for "special handling" for lack of a better way of saying it.
