Yep.  Virtualhosts aren't designed for that level of security.

You forgot to tell us what platform you're on.  You have one
suggestion based on FastCGI, and one I've never heard of based
on selinux.  Two simpler alternatives are CGI with suexec
(which is cross-platform) or mod_privileges (for Solaris).
