Heh, 'urban legends' :-)

That's a good point.

lol. However, haskell is opening market in the multi-core market, what
mtn brings?

Seriously, I'm only concerned about the 'hosting'. The other two
reasons are not problematic.

Heh, never tried it and probably I won't. ;)

How many projects are hosted there?

Data on the web site seems not to be up-to-date...Otoh, I'm interested
to host one project only...Cannot say how many LOCs it could be.

E.g. darcs' SLOC is 36,746 with ~8500 patches or 'changesets'. Is it
considered medium-sized project for mtn and how many MBs we would
require to serve it?

Thanks a lot. 

LEt me read & try some concrete things with mtn before playing with
converting of repos.

Same here. Do you also use DVC?
