Looks great, but:

"The assumptions made by the default tasks are more specific, but are either
configurable or overridable. Some of them are:

    * You are deploying a web application -- check
    * You are using Ruby on Rails to develop your application -- bit of a
problem for us php developers
    * You are using subversion to manage your source code -- check
    * You are deploying your application to ²/u/apps/#{appname}² on every
machine -- easy enough
    * You are using FastCGI to power your application -- ?
    * You are fronting your app with either lighttpd or apache -- check
