Firstly, just making sure you're aware of the pages on PmWiki --
http://pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/WebHosts and

Then there's a site devoted to reviews and discussion --

The discussion around the blog post at
http://decaflon.com/technology/notes/2482/ might be helpful, though the
discussion suffers from the same problem as the webhostingtalk.com site --
basically, what you get is more names to consider, and little help ruling
any of them out, since for every negative comment there are positives, about
pretty much any host.

One (at least) of the comments at that last link mentions mediatemple.  I
have friends who have just moved to that host and are delighted.

Hope some of that is somehow helpful - sorry to add positives and not
negatives, same as so many other sources will do. I'm still looking, too,
but will probably go with mediatemple just because my friends are happy
there. I've been unhappy with my present host's service, but am loathe to
mention them by name until I've moved away, lest they discover the mention
via a web-alert and decide to make life difficult(er) for me.  They're not a
big name, though, so you're unlikely to stumble into them.
