Synopsis: VirtualHosts don't work with suexec, why not simply...

State-Changed-From-To: open-closed
State-Changed-By: marc
State-Changed-When: Sun Mar  8 16:15:23 PST 1998
State-Changed-Why:
No, we can not do that.  It is not secure.  suexec has to
be secure even in the case that any user can execute it.
It is possible to extend it to allow multiple hardcoded
documentroots.  Right now, VirtualHosts work fine if you
put them all below a common directory.

suexec is very limited and anal on purpose; it is very easy
to open up a lot of security risks.
