If you wanted to do it, I think it's doable.  It won't hold up to a 
Reddit main page, or anything close to that, but it's going to be idle 
almost all the time, and it might well handle a mention on LtU.  I bet 
your biggest worry is putting the URL on a slide at a conference, and a 
couple of the people who load it up while you're trying to talk decide 
to try to stress-test your server for you, but that's probably 
manageable, too.  I think the questions are whether you want to do it 
and you have a server to dedicate to it.  Just mentioning that it's doable.
