I would not be opposed at all.  The algorithm that I use is very simple, and
the whole thing is just a tiny little IOWA app.  Right now there is just a
form based interface, but it'd be no problem to provide a web service
interface of some sort, too.

And I'd only mind the potential traffic if it became crippling.  :)  Right now
I seem to average around 1k hits a month on it, so I just ignore it.  If I
need to pay attention to it, I'll convert it to FCGI + IOWA and put a
different (i.e. simpler) layout around it and I should be able to stand quite
a bit of traffic.
