I find it actually a quite usefull feature. Allows me to quickly
enable/disable virtual servers.

The way I did it is to have a "000_default" in my sites-available,
that's always enabled (linked in sites-enabled).
In this file I have the NameVirtualHost directive, and the default,
catch-all, virtual host.

The other virtual hosts config files don't have the NameVirtualHost directive.
