As a system administrator, my take is that while things would work well
in the beginning, in the end things would get nasty with version
interdependencies and the requirements of different users. If I upgrade
the system-wide PHP installation and break it for some of the users...
well, they will not like me much. Similarly for systemwide installations
of GEOS, PostgreSQL, mapserver, etc. While some people will simply use
their area for happy tinkering, others will want to deploy stable
applications and leave them be. The tinkerers would be happy to always
have the latest version of everything, but the deployers would want
things left well enough alone.
