no, what I meant was that ken_extra.conf ( ->
httpd.extra.conf) would get appended to the currently generated httpd.conf,
then _that_ result is what is scanned.  but maybe it's not as simple to
change the internal logic to accomodate that.

I still don't see how the idea I'm proposing isn't sufficient, save that it
would need to live within t/conf.  that we could make it support variable
substitution doesn't mean that it can't be 100% hard-coded.
