Apache 2 came out 5 years ago. I wouldn't trust a web hosting provider
who can't be bothered to install software that's been out for 5 years to
stay up to date on security patches. You get what you pay for.

Also, CherryPy does not *require* Apache. It supplies its own web
server. Getting that server to run on a shared host may be a problem,
but it is incorrect to state that CherryPy *requires* Apache 2.
