Ability to customize health check in reserved deployments

Describe your feature request
I’d like to have the ability to configure the health check in a replit custom vm deployment for a web server.

What problem(s) would this feature solve?
My server takes some time to initialize (60 secs), and I am not able to deploy because it fails the health check. I’d like to be able to customize the health check (simpler thing is to remove it, or maybe to specify the wait time).

Explain what you were trying to do when you came across the problem leading to this feature request
Redeploying my flask app.

Quick note that I’m able to workaround that by initializing things in the background, but it slowed me down for an hour.

Hopefully an interesting datapoint for the replit team. Not sure what is the proper solution? Maybe ghostwriter should have been able to read the deployment log, diagnose the issue, and proper a change to init the blocking code asynchronously…? Or maybe it’s a health check knob like I originally asked? Something else?
