My suggestion:

apt-get source apache

rename the package, to something like apache-cmore
edit the debian/control to have it "Provide" apache, and "Conflicts"
with apache.

Yes, this is still harder to maintain with new versions, but it is still
fairly tidy. An alternative would be patching suexec to accept a run-time
path (from what I gather, this is non-trivial)
