The thing in my head is the idea of having lower priority sites in one VM
with 512MB and fewer but important sites on another with 512MB or more. That
way I could probably control bandwidth allocation better as well as not
worry about some runaway script or something bringing down the more
important sites. Or at least that's what I think the VM thing would benefit
me! :D

Plan for 5, it will probably be ready before you.

Hopefully! I'll be getting the hardware after this weekend and likely
throwing C5 Beta on it first and see how that works out.

Never touched it before, but that's apparently what DA will use by default.
So I sort of have to go along with it. Plus if I didn't misread it, Exim can
be setup to work with storing user accounts in sql db. I'm rather more
comfortable with adding email users using sql than with CLI.

Do check that any third-party stuff you might consider supports all

Together on the same machine?
