After a second thought about this, I came to the conclusion, that 
such a change is a not a trivial one and should be considered major.

1. a lot of ports are affected, in personal repos are some more we 
   have to add to Johannes' list, additional work for the maintainers
2. more important, work for the users. They must move all the htdocs,
   web applications, change configurations etc.

To be clear, I'm not against this in general, if we decide so, but 
I'm afraid the users will not be very happy at all.

Kind regards
