That's darn near a circular definition.  To demonstrate: what's wrong 
with the notion of switching the site to Anakia, which is stable, builds 
consistently with Gump, and powers,, 
and a number of other sites?

Now realize that I am *NOT* proposing Anakia.  What I am proposing is 
that the ability to view a site as it is being produced is a very 
valuable thing to have, and an important consideration both for a 
machine which is a shared resource and for any hope of there ever being 
personal usage of gump.

Beyond that, I would like to reiterate the point that there is value in 
keeping true to the original design where Gump bootstraps its own
