Agree, but it would be a nice solution to distribute the load, 
especially for not-so-dynamic content. I was thinking of the combination 
of mod_proxy together with mod_cache anyhow. I'll be testing this 
somewhere next week on a private server.

Given this setup, the Cocoon community has the ability to showcase its 
technology while still benefiting from the kind bandwidth donation of 
Collab/Sun. I know it sounds like piggybacking, but it would provide us 
with a nice balance of being able to do our own thing, possibly 
attracting other co-sponsors, until we are able to provide both CPU 
cycles and bandwidth ourselves.

I went shopping around for other sponsors (some Belgian ISPs) some 
months ago, but since Cocoon hasn't reached that level of market 
recognition yet, we are basically on our own. But hopefully, if we are 
able to showcase our technology, that will change (and we are very much 
open to it).
