BTW Is not fppkg something like npm?

and BTW although not for MVC but, can fppkg-lazarus integration be removed  
until it just works? I would like not to see the config lazarus IDE dialog  
to open on every launch just because fppkg is not setup right (Error: the  
Fppkg configuration is corrupt. et al), and there is no way the user can  
fix it (when you are not using 'by default' the default fpc install).
