short term practical wants:

- redundant git repository backup
- redundant crypto key backup (eg, "plan B" to regain access to other
- "personal information" store: address book, calendering
- VPN/tor/ipv6/cjdns end node (as a gateway for other traffic)
- general purpose shell account

longer term "nice to have":

- redundant searchable email store (but probably not actual server)
- e-currency wallet (eg bitcoin)
- real time messaging server/node (IRC, irssi, xmpp, SIP, voice+video chat)
- distributed/redundant file backup with Tahoe-LAFS
- distributed/redundant sharded crypto key backup (for friends)
- as a gateway for other traffic:
   - https-everywhere enforcement
   - ad/cookie/tracking filtering
   - caching for performance
   - persistant SSL, dnssec, ipsec, gpg certificate/key store, warn on change
   - IPv6 tunneling
- ultimately, to migrate from rented "cloud" VPS to owned plug computer
   hardware for most hosting needs
