Supporting distro re-packaging (Was: [sclug] Linux Apprentice Wanted !)

Miguel de Icaza had a long rant about this in his Gnome days:

He sees Mono as offering the ONLY answer in that you can write for on 
*nix and run anywhere with the Mono CLR installed.  Its sad that Java on 
desktop sucked for so long (has it been fixed yet?) but Mono does seem 
to offer a way out of the mess for desktop applications.

Not sure in something as fundamental as Apache will ever be easy for the 
developers to support though.  Apache and PHP are the core 
infrastructure for so many businesses that I can see any distro will 
want to tweak them for maximum performance.
