I have taken a list of third-party utilities from another host, webhostingbuzz.com (not accepting new customers now), and posted it at http://www.constitution.org/comp/var_util.htm . It includes a great many I want to be able to use. I invite everyone to join me in calling for the DreamHost staff to add them to the Goodies.

I’d think anyone can install most any of those if they like. If DH added those as 1-click installs they’d be expected to support them all to some degree and have a lot of patching to keep up with. I’d rather not pay for that thanks!
