I like the idea, only numbers are a little "off", IMHO.
My first impression was that 4 hours a day is a bit too much for archive
maintainance, but then it is probably a good estimate, epecially if you 
rephrase it as 20hrs/week :) Another thing is that I think it would be not
that easy (if not impossible) to find *qualified* individual for $10/hour.  
Also, how would you know the person is qualified - phone interview?
Might result in a big mistake :) Also, you should also take into account
the employer overhead for paying salary (even for part-time worker, even
if consider this payment a "non-employee compensation"), in some bad cases
it can be up to 50%. How are you gonna "raise" this kind of money?
And of course, we should hear the Guy's opinion on this.
