Actually, after looking at where it's being used in httpd, I am going to just
drop it.

soak_end_container just slurps config up to a closing </Block> discarding everything.
It's used by <IfDefine> and <IfModule> to slurp away all that in it when the condition
is false.

And even if a Perl user decided to implement something vaguely similar, it could be
written in 1-2 lines of Perl, or easily re-added.

So, I think it's better to just drop it for now.
