Isn't it 1.5 Tb or something? I agree torrenting would work, but that would
take quite a while to get to any reasonable amount of seeds. What about
Geocommons? Isn't that their thing?

Also, what about using an S3 bucket with a CoralCDN redirect, so the only
bandwidth costs would be the initial seeding to the Coral network?
