It would be a lot easier and cleaner all the way around if you put
your subdomain info in a separate file and use `Include ` in your
main file.

If it were me, and I were going to have to add/delete subdomains in
any quantity, I'd probably save the basic httpd.conf and subdomain
fragments in a build directory and use make* to assemble them.

* or rake or ant, depending :-)
