I'm not opposed to making stuff work out of the box, but I think using
/srv as a default location is wrong, since its structure is explicitly
undefined. I haven't looked at webapps-common, and I also believe this
problem is a bit larger than just webapps, though web applications are
much more common than say, services that lie on top of XMPP. Hopefully
there are good thoughts there that can be generalised a bit further so
we can have a «app/vhost service» policy.
