No, I was not aware.  Glad to hear it.  I wonder how long it will take me to get
used to typing /srv instead of /var.

If, after developing some code and installing it on a production system, the
admin chooses to make /var/www/mason read-only, everything will still work. 
Mason writes its cache files to MasonCacheDir, which we are pushing as
/var/cache/mason in this package.

I hope I understood correctly what you were asking here.
