But you're also predicting, and so am I, a spike in usage.   It's
public knowledge on the list that we're seeing the first little pops
of commercial (paying) interest in arch.

The optimistic view here is that the same deployment increase that's
going to cause you problems is also going to generate more corporate
spending on arch, thus creating ample opportunity to solve both my
problems staying fed and your problems running the supermirror as
something other than a generous contribution to the community.

Not a bad rule of thumb, anyway, for now.
