I'm confused -- is it Zope3 or Plone3? AFAIK Plone still runs on Zope2?

Are you talking about user foo's $HOME/public_html/ dir, as in, on a physical 
filesystem or the users' folder in the ZODB?

If the former, you're probably best off with serving them from Apache, 
probably by Rewriting some URLs to be served from the FS and some from Plone.
