If you compiled apache with vhost_alias_module it's almost zero
maintenance. You would just need to create directories.

<VirtualHost ilesansfil.org:80>
  ServerAlias *.ilesansfil.org
  ServerAdmin webmaster at ilesansfil.org
  ServerName www.ilesansfil.org
  UseCanonicalName Off
  VirtualDocumentRoot /var/www/%1/public_html

You'll need a couple vhosts before this one to catch your www, etc..

This should work if you are serving content, otherwise you may be able
to mod_rewrite your way to a redirect.
