Thanks for your patch. Your patch is well-documented and written, but
after some discussion on IRC, we believe that the sort of custom
configuration you are doing belongs more to your rootfs overlay +
post-build script than to an option in the official Buildroot.

Indeed, we could add zillions of options to customize all aspects of
lighttpd, but it would be a nightmare to maintain in Buildroot. So we
try to stick with mainly compile-time configuration of lighttpd,
installing a minimally working configuration file by default. The rest
of the runtime configuration should be done in each user's rootfs
overlay and post build scripts.
