Have a separate Bugzilla installation for the Bugzilla project?

In the grand scheme of things, the Bugzilla project is pretty small.  I
highly doubt we'd need anything more than a dual core server with 8GB of
RAM or so. (Maybe less RAM, depends on how bad mod_perl kills it, but
mod_perl is RAM-hungry).  Bugzilla.mozilla.org is a many-headed beast
because of Firefox and friends. :-)  Having the DB on a separate box
from the webserver may be good for performance.
