This has come up in devel at a couple of times, and
#pidgin on once (that I know of).  If we push the
webhosting off the server where mtn & mail are, or push just and its related needs (a copy of the mtn database,
postgres, and a mail server for outgoing mail only), then we should be
better able to prevent any one service from taking down all services.

This is particularly beneficial when we appear on /. or Ars or similar,
but as our continuing load average shows, it would help in any case.
