I don't see virtual hosts becoming the rule. Most of the shared host
users are in a shared host not only for the price but mainly for the
administrationless environment. They want one click install of forums,
CMSs, blogs, wikis, etc.

If we are talking about world domination it is necessary that mod_X be
installed by default by the shared host admins. Only then Python web
applications will have a chance against PHP applications. Otherwise
web Python will continue to be a niche tool comprised of Python
programmers with server administration expertise.
