Okay, lets try: Linked Data Deployment utlilities or scripts.

We are both seeking clarity.

Inadvertently conflating PHP scripts, Apache etc.. with the generic 
concept of "Linked Data Deployment" simply doesn't solve anything, really.

As you've stated: "..with just a small amount of porting required to 
adapt the .htaccess specifics." which implies inadvertent conflation.

Since these scripts are fundamentally about dealing with ".htaccess" 
simply make this crystal clear.

Okay, assuming you can't do this by hand short-term.
