one simple but immediate solution might be to make the directory
exportable among mirrors, so it can propagate to more front servers.

a simple xml or rss export of the entries and some simple instructions
on how to setup mirrors might lighten the server while spreading even
more the dir.xiph initiative (who wouldn't love to have a nice sidebox
on the website listing streams to tune in?)

well, probably this is a feature request for the next yp software..

thanks for all your efforts,
ciao
