The next step would be to ask them to all put the DocumentRoot under 
/var/www, instead of /srv/www sometimes.  Then the next step would be to 
ask to agree on a structure for the config files under /etc/apache2 .. 
ooops /etc/httpd, so that one doesn't use sites-available while the 
other uses vhosts.d.
Then we could also ask the Apache foundation to tell the Apache 
packagers for Windows to stop this nonsense of using install directory 
names with spaces, like C:/Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/.. 
etc..  Whatever was wrong with C:/apache ?

Hopeless, I'm afraid.
