Cool. :)

Two options spring to mind immediately.

1) We could rsync (etc) whatever's in the Rackspace backup to
   somewhere inside Red Hat.  Kaleb keeps on pointing out we
   have a bunch of servers and storage available inside the
   Red Hat firewall now.

2) I have a (personal) Linode that's been online for years,
   and is kept up to date package wise.  It normally has
   ~20GB free.

Option 1) is probably better.  It obviously has restrictions
on who can access it due to firewall (eg RH staff).  But I'm
thinking that should be workable since it's not the primary
backup set.
