It wouldn't be difficult at all to move the services: copy the database,
move the script, setup qmail and Apache, change the DNS record.

The question is, whether or not that we want to continue doing it.  I'm
not sure how much use these services get and I would suspect that most
of the e-mail that currently goes through the system is spam.
