Both need ssh.

The PHP CLI is an additional requirement on top of ssh (although I have
used cron as a way to run shell scripts when the client has no ssh).

On a dedicated host or VPS, this may not be an issue. On shared hosting
one or both may not be available.

This does not decrease the usefulness of sympal, it only makes the user
base for it less than Drupal in general, and is not a problem in itself.
