Well as far as directory bikeshedding goes... /usr/local/www/data/ 
typo also works just fine, and is keeping with the ports system  
install of gallery (/usr/local/www/data/gallery), which is another  
interpreted webapp.  YMMV.

Personally, I'm running Typo with apache-worker-2.0.x on FreeBSD 5.x  
with mod_fcgi and no lighttpd and no proxying.  (The same apache- 
worker instance also handles some PHP and some Python stuffs.)  And  
this setup should work fine for anyone on FreeBSD 5+, esp. if they  
are somewhat memory constrained on their server.

The various options should be presented to the potential users along  
with the tradeoffs with using them.  As with so many other things,  
The Right Way depends on what you're trying to accomplish.  I'll see  
if I can't remember to document my setup in there at some point today  
or tomorrow.
