> But we can do a *lot* to help avoid misconfigurations.

This particular misconfiguration is so rare that we're pushing an awful 
lot of effort onto the user - regardless of automation (as *knowing* 
where files are is half the battle) - for something they'll probably 
never encounter in their life, unlike say, XSS.

> oh, and we are not entirely apache-only, are we?

I deliberately didn't mention Apache in my own post because it's a NULL 
issue: the *frequency* with which it takes to *screw up a server SO BAD* 
such that a DocRoot is misplaced or PHP is broken, is common equally 
enough on Apache, LigHTTPD, Zeus, Covalent, IIS, or any other server. It 
happens *so infrequently* that the software used, or the method in which 
it is screwed up, doesn't make a damn bit of difference.
