Off the top of my head, I doubt it would be much of a burden on the
proxy to add those O2's.  If you set them all to use 2^28 blocks and
set the buffers to 1:1, you might conceivably run into problems, but
I believe the personal proxies can handle at least 50 simultaneous
connections.  If you set the O2's to something reasonable, you should
have absolutely no problem.
