Run two sets (or more) of servers with different configuration
files on different virtual host addresses.

The big problem is compatibility. Libc6 is the point that we can
make a clean break for new code. File descriptors however are the worst
of all. What happens if you pass file descriptor 257 to a program that
only understands 8 bit file descriptors..

Actually thats no reason at all. You can bind separately to specific
addresses. I've had apache 1.1 and 1.2 running at the same time on the
same box
