Considering they're identical? :)  [I assume one of those should be foo]

How would you distinguish between the two?  Would you have a directory
structure like:

If so, then you can just set the path for the 'UserDir' for each virtual
server seperately.  Something like 'UserDir /whatever/path/webstuff/foo/'
in the foo virtualhost config and a similar one in the bar config will
do that.  (Note that you could also set up the path itself as a 'symlink
forest' pointing to the real data elsewhere, which may be easier to set
up and maintain.)

If you want to do a db file (or even a program) like:
         joey -> /home/joey/public_html
         foo  -> /home/foo/public_html
         bar  -> /home/bar/public_html

... then mod_rewrite is your answer.  It would be a bit more complex to
set up (and not as 'self-documenting' as the directories are), but you
can do a bit more with it.

icky, but you asked...
