Incredible how many points this article gathers considering the valid arguments made in the comments[1]. There must be a lot of bad experience (or fear) with this platform.

Personally, I recently had my fair share of problems with the DownloadError, but I knew it would come up (because I read the documentation - and I concur with the limit for scaling reasons). So I built myself a failover decorator relaying the failing requests to a VPS.

Otherwise, I love GAE!
