I somehow doubt that there are going to be very many takers for a 
download that is likely to be >100 GB (uncompressed around 300), there's 
the additional issue that catching up to current status would require 
that such a build be done -very- regularly. VM without a preloaded 
planet or perhaps an interesting extract ... yes, do it!

I'm fairly sure that with some additional polish Kai's Ubuntu Tile 
Server package is the way to go, as long as we, as I've mentioned before 
get some way to nail down stable versions of the associated tools.
