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

Plesk is very finicky about the versions of software you install
and very jealous of its own configuration file.

So, once a server is running Plesk, it controls everything from
Apache to MySQL to PHP. You can't modify a setting in Apache.
Plesk will roll it back for you in few minutes.

This means tuning things on a Plesk server is a pain. It also
means you cannot upgrade things from RPMs, ...etc.

While the motivation behind this is understandable (they own
the configuration, so they only install their own sanctioned
versions of the software and disallow you from changing it),
it makes life so much harder if you want to upgrade something
or install an accelerator, or tune something.

So, this "fun" way will now extend to Drupal? Great. Means
more headaches for the clients and consultants.
