The thing is that if you're an 800 pound gorilla, you probably have enough
things that would benefit from being cached to make it worthwhile.

I'd expect that the Internet Archive is probably mostly long-tail hits with not
much hot content.  Has anybody modeled how much cache space would it take to
significantly improve the bandwidth situation?
