True. In my case I was fortunate enough that my users didn't know what they were missing - they were just glad that I had software that could do that sort of thing at all. (In my case, this is mainly for family and friends. I know this doesn't work in a lot of business environments. I'm fairly sure it would not work for any of my customers.) Gallery installs itself to work with the default domain for a stock Apache install. To get it working on multiple domains, you have to copy and reconfigure some stuff (I've never tried this myself, so I may be making it sound much simpler than it actually is.) If all else fails, you could always use equivs to tell dpkg and apt that you have a newer version installed.
