If all you're doing is hosting web pages, why do users need shells?
Most of the end-users I know (I'm talking non-savvy end users) prefer 
just to click on the 'upload this page with FTP' button on their
page creator program.
A bare few - the ones who handmake their pages or handedit them after
the page creator is done - are happy FTPing them up themselves.

I have *ONE* who wanted a shell account. One.
