While doing the revision, would it be too much trouble to add a section
for web apps ?

In my own experience I had lots of trouble adding one, which in the end
ended with
me copying another web apps files and adjusting it to my needs.

The problem lies in alot of description of the Makefile for compiling,
but since web apps
(most atleast) aren't compiled but just copied, there aren't any good
examples for that.
