Thanks for the witty reply...
(Note: Me and Stuart did talk online a few days ago about this)
"We have no idea how large or small it will be"
Then perhaps you should consider that and don't expect us to host it
until you get a more fine grained answer for that. We don't deal with
generics here, we deal with specifics (or near to it). All I'm after is
that you give us the details (when you're ready of course) and then
we'll figure out if we can do it or if we need to change a few things.
Anyways, like I said. Me and Stuart talked about this a bit and we're
both in line with things.
