I wonder about putting it on the "other server" in our community-- mine. 
At first (when we were first using Roundup), I didn't want to volunteer 
my resources. But I looked at Roundup's requirements and it doesn't seem 
too arduous (Python with a functioning anydbm module-- wow, it doesn't 
use an RDBMS backend?).

Luca: Would it be worthwhile to pursue moving FFmpeg's roundup to 
multimedia.cx? It sounds like my provider has slightly higher availability.
