I did the math and thought S3 was going to be quite a bit more
expensive than doing it ourselves, but once you factor in opportunity
cost (getting head count and good sysadmins isn't easy) Amazon looks
pretty good.

I think I would implement this a thin wrapper around a Mogile and S3
client that could make the decision of which to use.  Data would
either go into S3 or MogileFS.  Treating S3 as another host in Mogile
seems unnecessary since Amazon is already doing a good job of taking
care of redundancy and speed issues.
