Not sure about "less maintenance". The problem is that it doesn't work
out-of-the-box as of now, and requires a lot of tweaking.
Furthermore, it doesn't have an adequate end-user interface and
integrating it with our current website is also a daunting task.

*If* it was set up and working properly and *if* it was integrated with
our website, then yeah, it would certainly mean less maintenance.

Not sure about that. Possibly.

Anyhow, if someone wants to volunteer to set up a copy of the OBS that
works, and code the integration with our website, please go ahead.
Time is a precious resource to all of us. And a rare one, too.

As some might say, the right answer is: "patches are welcome"
