The actual hosting wasn't really so much the concern as the bonsai/tinder-box/bugzilla. Since I am already about to start paying a linux geek friend a pittance to maintain a cvs server for my copnay (non-Mozilla related projects) and if things go well down the road I will want to the fuller range of tools on the box, it might be nice to have it just all taken care of in one package, which could happen to help subsidize Moz's cost.

Maybe it is a stupid idea, maybe I am the only one who would ever consider not running such an environment in their spare time, and maybe my compnay will crash and burn leaving zero people who would ever ever even contemplate using suc a service, but you know if they are making money off of coffee any brainstorm on how to bring in more based on products they have built.
