I probably should have covered this more in my initial post, but they are 
basically doing that already (at 111 eighth, actually).  But there is some 
need for some low-cost client co-lo in-house, and there's some stuff I'd 
like to work on in-house without committing to a $700/month cabinet before 
we figure out if it's profitable or not.

What Alex posted about backup power and other pipe dreams was helpful; I 
won't go chasing that stuff.  But having electricity and cooling available 
for a handful of cabinets is something I should probably hold firm on.
