We used to a few years ago, but I had it changed because it caused us no 
end of problems.

This is correct, which is why i wonde rif any of these people using the 
'debian way' of vhost per file have actually used it in REAL environments, 
and if so, have they tried it in one vhost.conf file and noticed the 
differences, ther 'deabian way' seems a good idea as you pointed out,  if 
and only if you have a few hosts but when you have thousands as most 
hosting companies/ISP's-with-shared-hosting do, it would be have a 
performance impact.

If I get bored one day I might try it out on our dev box and see if there 
is any factual noticable impact as I suspect there would be.

1 : no it wouldnt matter, you just create the vhost file or delete it and 
restart apache

2 : agreed, have found that to be the case in and up to 2.2.8 have not 
tried it with 2.2.9

1/ GoogleGroups are UDP'd on my nntp server. If you use them, don't
    waste your time or energy replying to me.

2/ If only cleanfeed filtered out trolls as well as spam, usenet would be
    a nicer place.
