Nothing remotely so complex!

Just put your maintenance page somewhere, and start the
server with -f pointing to a trivial config that just serves
the page in response to everything.

Or set it as a FallbackResource or ErrorDocument, and
suppress your regular contents while under maintenance.
Useful if you want to continue serving some vhosts
while taking others out.
