Thanks for the sanity - thought I might have been missing something! Why
would anyone want a package for a web application? It lives in it's one
directory structure (no /usr, /etc), .. has it's on config environment, ..
and only impacts one *already* userland [web] service.
Personally, I'd like to have it packaged so that it worked more like a real
server application. Configuration files in /etc, state in /var, programs,
scripts, and read-only resources in /usr. Preferably with a dependency on a
webapps-common package that contained scripts for rolling out multiple
instances (to a variety of httpds) while continuing to share common resources
