Thanks for the reference!
OK. That helps. That page seems to be saying that the configuration
options are stored (reordered) and possibly only processed when a request is
I still like my method and the other parts of my argument, but I can see
that putting virtual host config files in conf.d is not invalid or risky.
Give me a few. I'll modify my page to take my new world view into
