Not sure about 10% of LE's volume capability, but Scott Helme blogged
about this back in January at [1], mentioning Buypass [2] as one
alternative to Let's Encrypt which provides free DV certs via ACME
validation [3]. Buypass even provides sample command lines for EFF's
Certbot client at [4], linked to from their product page (so about as
official as it gets).
