I've seen it done differently almost everywhere I've been, actually.
I just want a FAQ that I can hand to people to say "this is why we did

"If it makes sense to have web in /var, why isn't ftp there too?" For
We should document these things so that when we move on, people don't

at all with where /var/www is, that's just an example.
