Having had several sites attacked and compromised before, I have an
absolute requirement here: no customisation that makes it harder to
keep up to date with latest version of common php apps
(wordpress/drupal/mediawiki). If someone makes a WebID addon for these
packages I'd love to try it, but I can't risk complex local
customisations that will break when we update the software. Being
hacked is really really horrible!
