Thanks for letting us know -- I agree.  The Softlayer avenue is
something that Chris Cunnington and Colin are researching.  While
everyone seems open to the idea so far we haven't actually voted yet
for putting "Squeak c/o SFC" on the Softlayer agreement.  As Chris C.
mentioned there are at least a couple of options and we want to
understand the benefits as well as all the "costs" of each option.
