I would encourage this kind of approach (which is also documented in

Better would be to put the configuration inside /etc/apache/conf/<pkg>.conf
and let apache include /etc/apache/conf/*. In this way package have only to
make apache reload the configuration.
Of course /etc/apache/conf/ sould be a directory.
I'm not sure about apache-{ssl,perl} but a similar solution should be aplpied.

Indeed this is apache-only solution, and apache is not the only one http
server in Debian.

Most probably, in woody+1, wwwconfig-common (or what it will be) will feature
an utility to handle the modification of the include_path configuration
