In the dim and distant past on Mon, 30 Sep 2002 00:40:24 +0100, it was
rumoured that "mike henley" <rsrchstr at> spake thus on the
subject of "Re: idea for a much needed application" in comp.lang.perl:

Would be sys admin hell. 

Quite frankly, you'd probably be cursing about your hosting service
being crap because this would cause so much hassle to the people who
have to keep the servers running (patches and upgrades to software,
plus scripts by inexperienced users going haywire). 

I know that if I'd was working at a firm offering such things, they'd
have to pay me a lot since it woudl mean I'd have to be extremely good
at a whole lot of things, which in turn would mean expensive
subscriptions for users.

Life would be a lot easier if you could take a
look at the source code every once in a while.
