Hm.  I haven't had any trouble with that.  (well, okay, I have, here and
there, but I have been solving it by explicitly scoping and initializing
my variables.)

I believe they are.

Good, good.

Yes, of course.  $Application data is the Application Collection, as I
referred to it.

StateDir.  Okay.  (I thought this granularity was implied, and StateDir
was a global-where-to-put-files sort of thing)  First I modified my
virtualhost scopes each to have their own StateDir setting.

I have tried changing the StateDir inside of scopes, and found initially
that it didn't work - it was only paying attention to the base httpd.conf
setting of StateDir...?

I commented out that 'root' definition of StateDir, and then I got
individual state dir's active for my applications.  The application
collection data no longer appears elsewhere.

Have I found a bug in the overlapping-variable-values resolution for
configuration variable scoping?  It should have overwritten the StateDir
with the smaller-scope value, rather than ignoring it.

Thanks muchly, Josh.
