S3, Wikipedia, cost?

Interesting article up by Domas Mituzas on what it would cost for Wikipedia to use Amazon's S3.

http://dammit.lt/2007/05/01/wikipedia-s3-costs/#more-68

The number he works out shows that S3 while cheap for storage, would be more expensive for Wikipedia in terms of bandwidth cost (as compared to them buying, building out, and administering their own hosts).
