Well, maybe, but I've always kinda thought of t/ as the ServerRoot, 
anyway. I like that I can set the document root with variables in 
t/conf/extra/, though. That's a big bonus!

need to be consistent, then the module distribution root should be 
ServerRoot, too. Perhaps @ServerRoot@/t could be the default
