I'm not sure on that, I think there is solutions out there that would
like to have that on Windows to. I have made IIS Filters to fix that

I don't think so. IIS 6 has multiple Application Hosts (one per running
application) in an farm. We should support the same kind of
functionality but it's a lot of work to construct that for Apache but it
will bring Apache to the same level as IIS 6 when it comes to

Again, there is a lot of work to create this kind of isolation but when
it's done you can easily support running each app host with different
