Completely agreed.

The other thing I would add is mod_security from the repository at
centos.karan.org. With a properly updated mod_security ruleset, and
selinux running there's almost nothing that can get through. SElinux
will still allow things to occur that match the allowable apache
behavior even if it's malicious (Think standard sql injection). But
with selinux watching the server, and mod_security filtering the
applications, you'll be nearly as secure as possible.
