prominently on the cyrus homepage, 3-5k could be raised in less than a 


P.S. Ken, not sure if this would be easier or more complex, but another 
alternative here might be to write a mysql backend to cyrus, which 
would eliminate the need to worry about redundancy given mysql's 
multimaster functionality (this might also provide better 
searching/sort/access and enormous scaleability to the cyrus backends).
