Joe, that is a great idea!

I could run the site, as my server is Python-based (using the
Twisted/Nevow packages) and it very flexible. I've already got
something running that involves registered users logging in and
uploading and downloading binary files (PDFs of documents) to and from
a MySQL database. Tying the binaries to user IDs and transcripted text
would be very straightforward. I couldn't do much work in it for
another month or so, though.
