Are we talking about PHP or similar?  In that case, you probably don't 
need root access.  I wouldn't really call that "installing software".  I 
reserve that term for stuff that typically lives under /usr or /opt.

If we're talking about anything that needs to be compiled and can't run 
from either /home or cgi-bin, I think we're back to root access or fully 
managed hosting.

Better get one.  VM technology is only going to become more pervasive. 
If you think you don't have any use for VMs, you're probably wrong. :) 
There's nowhere I use computers that I don't use VMs, now.

How much?  Fully managed hosting usually starts well North of $100 a month.
