Binding to `0.0.0.0' binds *only* to the first address in a vserver--always
has done. To use extra IP addresses you have to put multiple <VirtualHosts>:
<VirtualHost 192.168.0.42> # Site on first IP
<VirtualHost 192.168.0.42> # Another site on first IP
<VirtualHost 192.168.0.42> # Third first IP
<VirtualHost 192.168.0.43> # Fourth site Second IP address
As you may have noticed it is possibley to run multiple websites on a single
IP address (!). Unless you are serving SSL websites there is probably no
reason to be using more than one IP address.
IP address space is a *scarce resource*, please use it *very carefully*.

v_httpd is a kludge because people want to run apache on the *host* server
aswell. If people would stop doing this, it could go away completely--don't
use it in a vserver.
