That's a cool idea, though it'll require mod_perl built in. Which is not 
the case with, which runs on the main httpd server. I 
think we will just ask root to add:

Include whatever/wherever/

, so we can modify it without bothering root. Of course that means that 
changes won't propogate immediately, but I doubt we will have any 
changes to .htaccess once we release the site.
