Alexei, we dont have that amount of bandwidth to throw this.  Our main US circuit is only
50Mb.  This has to provide all our other services too, such as svn, mail, www, mail-archives
etc. 
Right now we are pushinvg that circuit at over 100Mb during peak periods. Adding another 20Mb
is likely to upset folks at OSU.

Other resources you request should be do-able without a great deal of strain.  It's just the
bandwidth requirements that make this look very unattractive.
