I actually want to see this happen as well! I was thinking I would ask
for an existing path to a configuration file, read that, and dump a diff
in the Zope dir, but your approach works too.

This sounds really cool. With both cases, I think one issue is how many
configuration possibilities there are. For example, with iMeme, our
Which works for all the port 80 virtualhosting you want to do, so the
rest can stay in zope. Now, if you have specific, per-site apache
configuration needs past that point, you have to be smarter.
This is why i was thinking sniff the original config/supply a diff so
that you could do something intelligent- i.e. put the right rewrite
rules in the right VirtualHost directives - but I imagine there's limits
to how flexibly you could do things.
