Setting up cur en has been surprisingly easy in the past, particularly with
the advent of that fast C->mysql dump importer. And many people can afford
those cheap dell quad core nehalem i7 cpus "desktops".

But honestly I don't see why it can't just be thrown up on any old apache by
an experienced wmf admin in a matter of minutes, using the live data but not
attached to squid, memcached etc.. Honestly, how much load are we going to
subject this thing to right away?
