Replacing VirtualHostMonster with VirtualHostFolder (via deprecation,
etc.) might be a good decision but please remember those of us
who need to use the SiteRoot/access rule combo to do more than
can be done with the higher level tools.  SiteRoots and access rules
are primitives that can not be replaced by higher level simple
