No, and I doubt anybody does. On the same hand, if you read my post,
there was a graph of the version distribution of PHP over a wide range
of servers, and WordPress is installed just about everywhere.

Afaik, you still have to plug the sources in by hand, but then again,
cPanel's documentation has no mention either way. Even if it does, I
know for a fact its not the default.
