Why not ? It's an intranet app, few users, it does what we need. Its simple 
to deploy (one app instead of several separate apps). Much simpler 
infrastructure. Now i understand those awesome startups who deploy to 
Heroku of AWS or what have you in hopes to build next Facebook. Sure, go 
wild, nosql, thousands workers complex infrastructure.

But why would i overcomplicate my small intranet app, just because your 
deployment tool is not flexible enough ? It would be simpler for me just 
not to use your deployment tool :)
