Which is precisely ignoring my core point.  Movable Type setups on
shared hosting have at least a good shot at surviving a good digging -
WordPress setups, not so much.  How do we reverse that, other than
saying "buy better hosting" or "why not try a WordPress.com blog where
you have much less control over look, feel, plugins and
architecture?", both of which come off as sounding elitist, snobbish
and frankly demeaning.
