imo, which is the only relevant opinion [sarcasm], these things should
be in /usr/share/{pkgname} like anything else, with upload
directories/etc configured to /var/lib/{pkgname}.  phpmyadmin (on
debian?) IIRC works like this -- nothing should be writing to /etc,
and preferably nothing should be writing to /usr/share either
(locale-gen is the only tool i know off-hand that does this regularly,
and is incorrect imo).

on other distros these webapps are enabled by dropping configuration
files in /etc/httpd/* ... it would be nice to have a generic way of
specifying installation details (vs. just assuming apache2, which
bytes compared to uwsgi/mongrel2/nginx/{insert-here})
