[wp-hackers] Charging to install WordPress

Are they charging just for a default install, or for an install and
some support? Because those prices don't seem all that unreasonable to
me to hire somebody for custom work.

Now, yes, if it's just to install it and then to go away, then that is
ridiculous, but quite frankly anybody who cannot work out how to
install WordPress by themselves probably will need to hire somebody to
do support work for them at some point in the future.
