Funny, I use a similar approach for my personal sites when I host them on
nearlyfreespeech. My one complaint is that they use FreeBSD instead of
Linux; if I found a webhost that let me compile straight from my Arch/Ubuntu
box, I'd be very happy. (I'm sure they exist, but now I'm kind of addicted
to nearlyfreespeech's cheap pricing...)

Thanks for the suggestion.
