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.
