Good point.  Of course, in apache, it's quite easy to use the -f switch to 
pick the file you're running on.  so, with a 

httpd -f /usr/local/apache/conf/`uname -a|cut -d " " -f 2`.conf

I can pick and choose the file to run.  So, yes, I would gladly use it in 
a cluster, and all the files would be in one place, easy to backup.
