In the context of the email thread, no one in their sane mind will configure 
Amazon/Heroku/etc. VMs manually.  They will use ansible/puppet/chef/etc. to 
install packages and to start services after they are installed and configured. 

I honestly don't see what the big deal is.  Most of the time you will need to 
configure your apache server before you can start it.
