So, this "fun" way will now extend to Drupal? Great. Means

I still insist, this is not the case, in that we should not view one use
case (non-technical person grabs hosting, chooses to auto-install Drupal
instead of Joomla) with another (Drupal developer develops website as
consultant, makes customized install of Drupal).
These are different space and time use cases.
For example, at least one of my clients is someone who first got turned on
to Drupal via a fantastico install, then when I was contracted, of course
together with the customer we made our own SVN based install. One thing had
nothing to do with the other, in fact, client already knew about Drupal,
accepted Drupal.
On the other hand, if thousands of people start installing and discovering
Drupal via their Plesk consoles, and set up simple sites, what's the
problem? If a consultant runs into limitations they can either do a manual
install or change hosting.
A client can afford a separate hosting for a project: the cost of hosting
begins to approximate zero, anyhow.
