I generally expect SSH, but that's probably from years of using my
own servers; if I was a new developer, I might not need/expect that -
especially from a free service :)

As for deployment, if you can git push to it or similar, that's an easy
way to do it.

What about database control?  Do users get to connect to MySQL from
outside the service to e.g. set up their schema?

What about dependencies?  If a user wanted to use a CPAN module which
isn't installed, is there any process to install it locally (or request
that it be installed) or is it a case of "tough"?  (That would be fair
enough for free hosting :) )
