If the requirements can differ slightly from vhost to vhost you might
also have a look at mod_macro.
It is flexible an works reliable.
The downside compared to a solution that generates a file is that I
don't know of a way to view the configuration with expanded macros
which makes debugging the macros hard.
The downside compared to mod_vhost_alias and mod_rewrite is that you
have to add a configuration line for every vhost -- but for your
example this could be one line.
