Why not use 'real' virtual hosts? Ones that are not limited to beeing
virtual hosts for httpd. Why not create


and so on. This could then be used by even more software than just 
a webserver. With this technique you can provide shell jails for users 
by adding /vhosts/the.host.name/{bin,usr/bin} with bind-mounting
onto this filesystem or create packages that provide special development
root filesystems (sid development within a potato system...).

My two cents,
