This is a general anarchy problem with everybody reinterpreting the 
'rules' for standardisation of the directory structure to their own 
ends. Since the FHS standard simply does not ACTUALLY define anything 

Add PHP and a database to the mix and a dozen variations seem to become 
hundreds, so perhaps it IS time some of the base projects started 
nailing things down in conjunction with FHS and removes the totally 
useless current 'standard' where EVERY variation is claimed to be 
compliant and FHS is used as the justification for MAKING their personal 
changes :(
