Look, 1000's of webdevelopers out there don't want the hassle of installing and maintaining a Django installation. All they need to do with this is write and App. And it is hosted for FREE. Get it. FREE. If it doesn't take off, they haven't wasted £10, £30, £70 a month for nothing. If it does, then I'm sure Google's pricing will be relatively attractive, and that there will be an Open Source implementation of the GAPI's to easily port it OFF of Google.
How many people host their blogs on Blogspot/Blogger? How many people use GMail? How many people use GoogleDocs. Millions.
