But what would be the impact, like reading one 20K httpd.conf and one 300K 
vhosts.conf file, or 2000 separate files, the latter seems like a lot of
extra work, sure it might be negligible for a hundred or so odd hosts, 
but what about when you have thousands, I'd think the additional I/O would 
add tremendously to stop/start/restart times at least.

It is really trivial to write a perl script to add/delete vhost blocks.

    a nicer place.
