ouch. we plan to be running servlets on moof, that's for sure and 8080 
is very likely to be already used on that machine (even if we can 
install the servlet engine in some other port, since it's going to be 
proxypassed anyway)

I'm all for a dedicated box. Sam, we have hardware and bandwidth 
donated by Sun and Apple, maybe IBM could join and donate a beefy linux 
machine for Gump runs?

I'm sure that would be highly appreciated here.
