Don't worry, Tim, I run such a company and the SqF won't need to pay us for 
that (at least not until it starts eating /major/ parts of our bandwidth, at 
which time I think it won't be very hard to find some sponsors). I've got a 
development/emergency backup server already running Swiki's 
(swiki.cdegroot.com/squeakfoundation) and if there's a serious effort around a 
Squeak Foundation, there's no problem in moving that to our production 
machines (IBM servers with lots of RAID arrays, 24x7 pagers and other 
impressive thingies ;-)).
