First off, thanks for your fast turnaround, I'm sure everyone appreciates it!

Yeah, I think this might be a good idea. Maybe it should always
install a copy of the data files (including templates) into something
like .orig and if the actual file doesn't exist, install it again so
people can use it.

BTW, are there any source changes between the main source tree and
the BSD version? Joe Jah has reported coredumps on BSDI because of
incompatibilities between the regex.c that comes with ht://Dig and
the library. Also, since we're in the process of beta-testing 3.2.0,
I'd like to grab any patches out there for potential inclusion into
the tree.
