Just use Panix.  $100/year for 50MB and a full shell.  It's pretty
cheap, but service/support is still excellent.  Current default version
of Python is 2.1.1, which reminds me to request an upgrade to 2.1.2 and
an install of 2.2.

You do have to add $50/year if you want your own domain name to be used.
