[m-dev.] Hosting.

I looked at shared hosting.

A friend of mine recommended
https://www.nearlyfreespeech.net    Which has plans that scale with usage.
http://mediatemple.net              Which has one big plan which is way more
                                    than we need.

Both of these have huge capacity, probably enough for our FTP archive.
But neither of these, nor any other shared hosting provider I found, offers
mailing list hosting.  We could either host our mailing lists somewhere
else, such as google groups (which means we don't get the @mercurylang.org
domain), or we're back to running a VPS (which is more complicated).

We can mix-and-match services, using one service for email and another for
the website.
