In my experience, it's not that uncommon for hosting providers to support
Python - but most of the popular frameworks use "long-running processes" (I
put that in quotes because I suppose it's a matter of opinion exactly how
long is long.)  GoDaddy in particular, and budget shared hosting services in
general, don't support Django/TurboGears/Pylons etc. for this reason - but
if you want to roll your own, you can.

Django, TurboGears, and Pylons have pages that list hosting providers who
_do_ support them.
