Long term, as long as the organizations donating colocation can float
the difference between the operating costs and the donations I scare
up.  Speaking of which, I have this paypal address... :)

I'm indifferent to what images get tested, but adding T(A)ILS to the
image testing suite will impact non-T(A)ILS testing.  That might be a

resource intensive or not.
