Bug#372308: apache2-common: Need few alternative suexec2 with different docroot

Package: apache2-common
Severity: important

As I know, many  people use debian as base of sahred hosting. And in most cases, user data are stored in 
/home/*/public_html/ and it's subdirs. For now, suexec2 does not work outside /var/www. Yes, maybe on non-shared 
system single /var/www dir works well, but if I'd like to run cgi scripts from /home/... I have to use single user 
for all scripts to run. It is not secure in case when I have untrusted users. Please, add to package ability 
to select different suexec binaries with different docroot, maybe it could be choosen by alternatives. For now, 
I must get sources for apache2, fix debian/rules and rebuild package - it disallow me to use automatic update tools 
and force to install developer tools and -dev packages that are not needed on production server. I think, I'm not 
only man who have such problem.
