Bug#240772: apache2-common: files in apache2-default should be in /var/www

Package: apache2-common
Version: 2.0.48-8
Severity: normal

When installing an apache2 mpm, the default document root is /var/www.
This is correct, but apache2-common doesn't put anything into /var/www,
other than the apache2-default subdirectory.  People who then use apache
see a directory list, and get the "if you see this, the installation of
apache was successful" page if they go into the apache2-default

Apache2-common should put at least an index.html into /var/www.
Obviously, you'll need to figure out how to get apache-common and
apache2-common to co-exist happily, with both wanting to put files into

Another alternative (and preferred, imo) is to split apache2-common and
apache-common out further; right now they contain both arch specific
binaries and arch-independant files.  Why not make an apache-files (or
apache-data) package that contains the various icons (I'm not sure how
different /usr/share/apache2/icons is from the apache1 icons) and
/var/www files, and have the apache-common and apache2-common packages 
contain binaries and apache-version-specific scripts?  Both
apache-common and apache2-common could depend upon apache-files.
