As you remember I never liked vhost concept implementations. But still -
if we have the same engine shared for several web servers (we may call
them vhosts), the engine should be able to configure contexts
differently depending on the vhost. I'm not suggesting any specific
implementation, I'm not saying that a class is needed, but I'm just
missing something from this picture.
