Webware is really old, started in the pre Python 2.0 ages which had not
even a distutils package. So Webware invented a lot of the stuff itself
we now take for granted, e.g. its own plugin-system. You're right, this
is now an anachronism. I'm planning to make Webware more standard which
involves some drastic changes. I wanted to start a discussion about this
after Webware 1.0 is out. This must happen in a new version branch.

Since version 0.9 or so, there are no absolute pathnames in Webware
working dirs any more, except one single pointer to the Webware
installation itself, so you can freely move an copy them.
Concerning compatibility, the 1.0 branch will be stable and maintained
with bugfixes for a very long time.
