I don't mind the time, as I do this for myself already.  The problem is that
if I go on holidays/disappear/stop caring about Mercury then that leaves
everyone else in a difficult situation.  I'd like to avoid that if I
can.  But as I'm not planning on any of the above the risk is low.  We
(you) could deal with it if it happens, or review our hosting at a later
date (as Zoltan mentioned).

Okay, I'll go ahead and do this.
