The way vhost-base implemented this was to have a common frontend, with
every application making use of vhosts providing its own
add/remove/enable/disable/whatever scripts, and the vhost-base scripts
(addvhost, delvhost, envhost, disvhost) just passed them as much
information as they needed to know (generally just the name of the
vhost, and base configuration).
