For those without the "benefit" of experiencing the previous  
fantastico-related threads, the summary of the problem is:

If Plesk doesn't keep the copy of Drupal they automagically install  
up to date, it creates support hassles and potential security  
problems for those of us who develop and support Drupal installations  
in the wild.  For example, fantastico was still shipping 4.5.x core  
well into last year (or something insane like that).

So, if Plesk keeps up to date, agreed, this would be nice.  However,  
if they get it working with 5.0 and don't touch it for 2 years, it  

That's the worry.  Only time will tell if it's actually a problem.
