Curious: what software and why? The only valid reason is that the sofware 
writes php_value/php_flag options to .htaccess files. This has many other 
implications and I would carefully examine the software and all other 
websoftware I have installed, before allowing this.

The software is, it is social software, i'm working on a project
for a world of warcraft guild (yes this is a money deal), they are looking
for a facebookish type site with some custom world of warcraft stuff done.

I haven't really looked too much at the software yet although I'm going to.
This is going to be on a dedicated server, not doing anything else.
