I "ditto" this.  I think $12/month is pretty reasonable.  For this price I 
wouldn't expect a hefty environment.  However, I would like to tweak what we 
would get for this price.  Eg. 500 - 800 MB disk space, 1 MySQL DB, 1 website 
with email.  With Seaside the greatest need besides memory is disk space, 
since images tend to grow quite a bit.  They do shrink after a while, but I 
wouldn't want my app to start crashing/failing because I ran out of disk 
space that I need only for a matter of hours.
