The FlaggedRevs lab site mysteriously got better, which makes me
nervous. To counteract that, I'd like to put together some basic smoke
and load tests. My plan is to do that on Amazon's cloud infrastructure.

other requirements (e.g., particular kernel versions, supporting
Once I get the AMI working, I'll post details here so others can easily
spin up pseudo-production boxes.
