I think that to truly change the ServerAlias in all your processes you 
need to restart the server, but i could very well be wrong.

However, this is something i've wanted to do too, and the way i had been 
thinking about getting around an inability to add ServerAliases in the 
short term was to set up a catch all virtual host that would use the 
requests Host header to determine what it should ultimately do with the 

In the scenario i was imagining i'd have an init handler that would run 
on the catch all vhost which would stuff a handful of variables into 
pnotes.  My later phase code would then check for the existance of the 
pnotes variables, and either use them, or use it's normal route of doing 
whatever it was wanting to do.

If you were just adding additional server aliases for already set up 
sites you could just have your init handler redirect to the 'main' 
domain' of that alias or something like that.

Another option to think about anyway.
