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

 /vhosts/the.host.name/usr/lib/cgi-bin
 /vhosts/the.host.name/var/www
 /vhosts/the.host.name/var/log
 /vhosts/the.host.name/etc/apache

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,
  Joerg
