[Mono-list] Domain host considering hosting Mono

My RHEL-based host (now shifting from BSD) is quite large and supports
thousands of domains. Based on a recent inquiry I made I understand they
are now looking into hosting Mono for new and existing customers.

Is there a document somewhere that targets this specific audience with
information about the concerns for shared hosts?

We have plenty of disk with this host - is the Linux Installer an option
for individual installs?  We don't have shell access so we'd need to do all
command-line operations via remote/cron-executed scripts.

Some dependencies and components would need to be removed, since for
example, we don't need Gtk# on a system that's not serving thick-client
apps, and they're running Apache and we wouldn't be able to run XSP.

This could be a big opportunity for Mono to get some exposure with a major
host.  I'm just wondering how secure and stable it would be in this sort of
environment.  Does anyone build installers or RPMs that are oriented toward
this focus audience?
