Get a new webhost. Seriously. This is a seriously absurd requirement --
it goes past absurd into malicious incompetence, frankly. Not being able
to upload your own modules?

There has to be another option. Personally, I'm a major fan of
Webfaction -- from price to plans to what's supported to actual
effectiveness of their tech support.

But I don't know if they have a warehouse in Australia, if their latency
with any of their various data centers is suitable for you. Maybe, maybe
not -- but there /has/ to be a better option then this site... Good
hosts these days are not all that uncommon and are fairly competitive.
