What I have:

Several frontends, with different IPs. They hold several vhosts and are 
loadbalanced. So they have virtualhost entries for an external IP, the 
main fqdn for the specific site, and some aliases including a stile name for testing individual frontends... (for 
example,, etc.).

They only differ in their IP and the XX in webXX. I'd like to have a 
main configuration (possibly included from a network share) for all 
frontends. So my config would look simething like:

<VirtualHost %IP>

I hope this clarifies. I will skim through the addon link you sent me
