Would each be under his own virtual server in apache then, and therefore
have his own config section?  This just seems to be saving some typing
the the httpd.conf file, a few lines above the PythonOption will be
DocumentRoot.  mod_perl goes insane and allows programming logic in the
conf file, and this is a bad thing imho; nothing like restarting a
server that doesn't come back because of a programmin error inside the
conf and quickly trying to debug it while the entire server remains
