No Sir. apache has a conf.d, we simply link our config snippet there and
are finished.
The only thing Im not sure is: Do we do it in postinst or in package
creation. And, like some others, blindly for all apache (apache,
apache-ssl and apache-perl) or do we ask the user with a debconf

BTW: Im at the moment working on debian/rules - that one is a beast.
Ive rebuilt it a bit, but not to the way I really like it, but need to
stop in a few minutes.
Well, at least it builds again and is converted to debhelper V4 (I dont
think you would like a dh-less version :) ). And it produces debs that
are similar to the ones in the archive, so i think it works, but its
untested for now. (I can test more than the build on monday evening or
tuesday, not before, sorry).
After you get my cvs commit message via this list please take a look and
test it.

BTW: While you are fixing the scripts (maybe remove prerm as it doesnt
do any useful thing?), please add the debhelper tags too. :)

bye Joerg
