I have an account with www.freeshell.org.  It has support for Python, 
C/C++, PHP, Perl, and quite a few other languages.  You have to make a 
one-time donation of $30 or so (it's a nonprofit public shell account 
provider) to get web hosting and all that.  You also get a full Unix 
shell account.

You might want to check it out.  I'm not sure about Zope or Cheetah, 
whatever those are (I'm new to Python), but it definately supports 
Python.  I just wrote some scripts for my web site on there.
