Hi Mathieu,

I already tried enabling FPM by default but it ended with a weird errors
on the user side, see:


So I have disabled it again. It might need a debconf question that can
be pre-seeded or something like that before we re-enable it again.

I've been getting a lot of complaints that `apt-get install php` pulls
apache2 and FPM SAPI is much safer anyway.
