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.
