  What I dislike are statements like "it's faster to put all vhosts in your
main configuration file" without anything to back it up.  Noel Butler at
least provided some numbers (1 second for 400 files) so people have *some*
benchmark to go by.  

  So I can live with 5 seconds for 2,000 files if it makes administration
easier on the rare occasions that Apache needs to be fully restarted (not
just a graceful restart).  You prefer to save those five seconds, but don't
mind editing a file with 2,000 vhosts.
