with mandrake you get webmin 0.84 installed which looks on the
first look complete to handle all tasks...

No, I was serious. It /was/ time for my nap. ;-)
I've started up a SourceForge project for the virtual host module
(calling it 'mojo'). I'll ping the list when I have the currently
working bits available for trying out.
Right now it can list the virts, create Apache virts, create a system
user, create a directory, and destroy the Webmin users file. That last
one is a bug, and will be fixed before I foist it out on unsuspecting
users. I'd like to make it generate a Webmin user instead of destroying
the Webmin users file--but we take what we can get and we learn as we
I'll be working on it some this weekend so might get a little closer to
a functional module soon. Volunteers are welcome.

I sort of confused the question when I asked it. My real question is
are there any concerns with running webmin on systems such as shell
servers? Ones with local users who may or may not be totally trustworthy?
I remember a temp file problem before. My best guess would be there's
always a risk with anything...
