Well, there may be a few interesting pieces left, but it's heavily outdated:
- /var/www is no longer the default docroot
- It is no longer recommended to create a conf in /etc/PKG/ and a link
to it from /etc/apache2/conf.d/
Actually, that directory doesn't even exist any more, so this is a
really bad idea...

I would rather suggest reading

The new system is more complex, but it includes a lot of nice features,
like preserving the links removals by a local administrator upon package
upgrades, dependencies between modules, debhelper integration to
generate maintainer scripts snippets, and so on... (Thanks Arno!)
