What I was asking for was: Which server should a package use to have
phpgroupware's pages served and how do I find out?
Presently, phpgroupware asks via debconf, thus the user will only have
the choices I put there (i.e. not apache-perl at present).
As many packages provide some kind of service via a web interface, maybe
the the question (presented to the user in a fashion similar to the
phpmyadmin question) should be asked by apache-common or wwwconfig-common.
Note that you're cited with a problem that's strikingly similar
(location of htdocs) in TODO.Debian.

I'm kind of surprised about the appearant disinterest of the Debian
Apache team in (a tool similar to the apache configuration facilities
of) wwwconfig-common that would make it easy to avoid most of the bugs
at issue.
Maybe some common infrastructure would be nice?
A typical web-based foo will require "web server that does php", thus
any time someone introduces another apache* (that includes apache2)
variant or some other webserver, another couple of dozen bugs will be filed?

Kind regards
