Re: Wcal packaging question
Debian policy states that the directory for CGI content should be
/usr/lib/cgi-bin - Create a directory (say, /usr/lib/cgi-bin/wcal) and
install in it.

already scrpiptaliased in a default Debian installation.
Always, if possible, avoid messing with other programs. If you have to...
Well, then do it ;-) but I would recommend you not to.
