There is some merit; I just doubt that it will be worth the speed penalty.
If the users are lucky and everything is contained within one server, the
number of duplicates will go down. Whether or not it will go down enough
is anyone's guess right now.
I think that a functioning hack is easy enough to produce that it might be
worth a try. Of course, I don't have the time to do it.

Well, he already give valid enough reasons for that (to him at least, which
is all that matters). If he wants to hack, why say no? And if it means
that I can get more 2.0 testing and keep a site running Majordomo, I'm more
than willing to guide someone's efforts.
