I'm spending a bit more time on it later today (Monday BST), but the
basic problem remains:

  How to install cgi-bin and config files neatly with MakeMaker?
  (or another portable solution)

I really want to avoid building a new brittle installer if possible.

We need developers to call for tests and docs when they add stuff.

If we had a functional description (and the default .xml and .sql
files), it wouldn't be so hard to do!

But, as you quote from Paul's email:

which is rather a hindrance for installer development!

The new installer will replace these steps:
>     * cvs checkout
>     * koha.xml creation

but only suggest how to do this, with example mysql commands:
>     * empty koha_v3 db creation
and configuring the webserver, as that's where all the local
differences cause problems and where we need total flexibility.
