On a general point of view it's probably the best practice to serve
each virtual host from a dedicated BB process.
But I think it may depends on the "size" of the application (size
meaning essentially the number of users/visitors and the number of
served pages).
For small web sites, having a process for each virtual host can seem
quite resources consuming...
