Is there much tailoring that would need to be done to Debian on the
server side?  I think being able to use Debian on the server also has
important potential as a cost-saving tool, I'm just not sure how much
is actually involved aside from default package selection.

This is the sticking point for me.  How do we go about identifying the
general needs of CSOs?  There've been a fair number of case studies
posted to the list already, but most use task descriptions that are
largely unfamiliar to me as one having no experience in the day-to-day
administration of such orgs.
