The problem with add_config() is that it wants a string as if you've written 
it in httpd.conf language. Taking an access to %Apache::ReadConfig:: away 
takes away the ability to use perl structs to autovivify complex constructs. 
e.g. how do you build a complex vhost with nested containers using add_config?

may be we could have an alternative method, accepting an SV (e.g. a hash ref 
which represents a container) which perl will then convert to a string and 
feed to add_config?
