As long as you have FTP access and the ability to specify a
PYTHONPATH somehow (eg via .htaccess on Apache), you just need 
to copy a quixote directory from your own machine: it's pure 
python (I think). I've done that on my cornerhost.com account 
without any problems.

You've probably sussed this already, but it's perfectly possible
to have most of your site static with dynamic parts serviced via
Quixote: just call them via your quixote_handler.cgi, possibly
hidden behind a rewrite to provide a more graceful URL.
