[drupal-devel] multihost vhost per-user apache

I was wondering if any of you had experiences with a multisite environment on 
apache, where apache runs in a vhost environment, in such a way that each 
vhost has a user and apache runs as that user.

We want to give all hosted sites full UID1 permissions on drupal, meaning that 
they are allowed (for example) to make PHP pages and blocks. 
One day there will be a user that abuses that, or tries to root the server 
with that. So we need to limit the abilities of the user running PHP/drupal.
Each multisite will run on a single drupal multisite installation, but with 
apache as a separate user. 

It seems to work out fine, but I wonder if any of you people has more 
experience with this, and knows if there are any oddities and quirks to be
