So just change your config files. Easy peasy.
Best practice, if using mongrel_cluster, is to throw it into a directory
like what you're suggesting. In the announcement thread for
mongrel_cluster 220.127.116.11 it's recommended to config for using the
/var/run directory. But you can choose what you want.
