The configuration/documents -are- retained, only the 'default' configs
(used to create httpd.conf, etc) and installed binaries are uninstalled.

If you had added in a third party module, such as mod_php, mod_aspdotnet
or whatever, those are not removed either.  Only files created by the
installer itself.  This is why you need to manually remove the Apache2
directory yourself, along with log files and configs.
