No. This should be very easy to set up:

- chrooted mod-python/apache servers on pre-allocated ports

- front end apache server proxying to the individual servers

But developers wanting to provide an example will be laden with having
to provide their own hosting.

I will be happy to provide hosting... though I only have an ADSL
setup. I will try to find a someone with a better uplink and we can
move to there.

Anyway, these are details.

I'll try to come up with a timesheet app by the end of next week.
