Not quite a deckchair re-arrangement, but I'd love to
see an 2nd independent instance of what LE do, capable
of handling about 10% of the same volume, and of ramping
up, just in case.

Hundreds of CAs was wrong. Approximately one sensible
CA also seems wrong to me.

If we did have an LE-alternate that had no effect (at
the moment) that'd be just fine:-)
