Also, for pure Gentoo needs it may be better to replace webapp-config with
package manager and eclasses.
So to install web apps to /usr/share or sth and provide apache config files to
set up those webapps like Debian does for instance - so dispatch-conf would be
utilized for tracking config file modifications and uninstall via unmerge
One major obstacle is that we have quite a number of web servers to support if
we're to provide out of the box experience for those web apps.
