If someone can tell us how to set it up, I'd think Tony and I would be happy 
to have one running on  Better even would be someone 
willing to tell me how to set it up, and then do the necessary testing to 
decide if it is, in fact, useful.

I also have an outstanding request to also mirror NetBSD and OpenBSD cvsup on 
cvsup3, which I hopefully will get a chance to look at soon.
