This is the main point I guess I didn't clearly express. Don't assume that just
because you have only 1 apache installed that everyone else does too.
Also, if you deviate from what the standard install tools do (which is install
things based on how CPAN is configured on that machine) then actually make it
harder for people who need to install your module in a non-standard place. This
is pretty common for dev environments. I (and most Perl people I would assume)
already know how to tell EU::MM or Module::Build how to put things where I want
them. If you do it differently it makes our lives harder.
I guess what it comes down to is that putting modules into non-standard places
is pretty common, so please don't implement your own way of doing that.
