This is my idea - I'm installing Apache 2.0.
1. Apache package contains default configs in Resource/Defaults (as now;
2. After install, these defaults are copied into
a) /Programs/Apache/Settings/2.0 or
depending on user.
3. /Programs/Apache/Settings/2.0 ( or /Programs/Apache/Settings/Shared )
is symlinked to:
/Programs/Apache/Settings/Current (not necessary)
4. 1-3 will be repeated the same way with Resource/Variable.
a) customized or shared configs, cusotomized or shared variable contents
b) no changes to program's dir after installation
(Resource/Defaults would be still there untouched,
so you'd be able to return the original configs)
