Very true. Unfortunately, I am not one of those people you mention. I have 
poked around a bit, read much of the code but I can't say I understand it 

Currently I am chasing for example the following bug. "make test" works for 
one of my modules. "t/TEST -start-httpd; t/TEST -run-tests" fails. The started 
server listens on 3 ports (VHosts). The test script uses the follwing code to 
get the addresses of those VHosts:

Apache::TestRequest::module 'ssl';
t_debug "Using HTTPS @ $sslhostport";

Apache::TestRequest::module 'default';
t_debug "Using HTTP @ $hostport";

Now, it happens that when the server is started one set of ports is allocated 
when the test runs t/conf/ is overwritten with another 
set of ports. Don't know if it's my fault or Apache::Test's.
