Noiw it's not supported yet. The way I will implement it (if no one
does it before me), is to have a special RootResource class, which
will know (through lookup) how to map virtual hosts to
DirectoryResource. This will also require being able to "clone" an
instance of httpd in order to have multiple threads running the accept
calls (one per virrtual host).

Hopefully in the mid-August release....

Anselm.
