There is a group that wants to store data in our AFS cell, but they want
to supply their own fileserver so they can buy disk for it as needed,
rather than asking us to buy more.

What dangers might there be in doing this?  Is there any administrative
access they would need to run it that they should not have?

Any pointers toward docs that deal with a strange case like this would be
very much appreciated!
