Well, here's a test. Let me know if this works. It's going to be
incredibly slow, of course:
If someone with a fast connection wants to act as a seed, the original
file is at http://download.wikimedia.org/eowiki/20070209/eowiki-20070209-pages-meta-current.xml.bz2
And while you're at it, if you've got a fast connection, even if you
don't want to be a seed, try making a .torrent file to get us started.
I'm not downloading the English Wikipedia right now...
