[development] FYI: Plesk 8.2 offers Drupal as a site application

I think it is important to see a two-tier question on this:
1. In order to comply with expanding the term "drupal-user" to as wide-based
a sector as possible, fantastico and plesk inclusion of auto-installation of
drupal is a godsend, to help non-technical users _start using drupal_!
2. "We developers", on the other hand, who deal with multiple sites and
version control with clients systems, etc, etc., etc., probably want to use
SVN or CVS or other scriptly automaticated methods of handling our client's
drupal installations. Any developer worth his white drupal dojo belt should
have her own system of drupal site maintenance. And new Drupal modules are
coming out to aid us in this.

It is by the first and not the second criteria that we should judge this
news, which, in the light of the first criteria, is good news.
