My comments re: Apache were just an expression of personal taste, btw. I
actually started life as a UNIX sysadmin running big internal networks at Sun...
but I still think Apache's config is baroque, overly complex, and more difficult
to automate than it should be. It's tolerable --- maybe --- but there's lots of
room for improvement.
