I play mage as main, and I have a level 62 (or so) Priest alt...two clothies for twice the repair bills!And while your leveling point was made in jest, it's too true. As soon as I stopped leveling with my brother, killing mobs as my holy priest became the most difficult thing in the world...Thankfully, if you have a Main to shovel out 1000 gold at level 40, you can dual spec Holy/Shadow to heal instances and kill things!

One of the reasons that priests are asked to heal more often than other classes is that, either Shadow spec or Holy spec, they should be able to heal most low-level instances (just with water breaks after trash). Unlike druids (feral), shaman (enh) or pallies (ret), priests choose gear with int/spirit/spellpower on it while leveling. It's true that you'll see some boomkins and some ele shammies while leveling, but with priests it's a guaranteed "geared to heal", even if "willing to heal" is less assured. It also sounds odd, but learning to heal while Shadow-spec'd has some advantages. You learn early on about the importance of mana management, you learn what to look for from a tank (especially multi-target threat) and you learn to heal without a real safety net. I wouldn't suggest heroics, but not-max-level regular instances are pretty easy to heal usually.

Priests also have the best base (ie. non-talent skills) out of all the healers.Maybe I'm just terribad and Druid healing, but healing a 5-man as a boomkin spec was way harder for me than as a shadow priest.
