Yes, I think it would be a great platform for that.  That would be an  
interesting iteration on seasidehosting.st: a pre-built linux image  
for EC2 configured to pull a Squeak image and a directory of static  
content out of S3, then start up apache, mod_proxy, and the Squeak VM...

Unfortunately it still seems to be hard to get into the beta.  I  
tried signing up first thing this morning but no luck.
