+1 to having an easy way to install a PEAR file.  I guess I always
thought we had that already in the InstallationController class.  This
is the code you're referring to that's too complex and not well

Maybe this can just be added as a static method on
InstallationController?  And if the documentation on
InstallationController can be improved, by all means let's do that.
