No, you've caught the vhost system in a state of extreme unworkingness -
there was a very rough version that maybe worked a while back, but it
seriously needs a rewrite and some love.

It is however entirely workable without vhost-base; add sites and modules to
/etc/apache2/{sites,mods}-available, and enable them with a symlink into

A more suitable list for further discussion is debian-apache, and the
reply-to is set accordingly.
