So, I've decided how to handle the mail thing.

Google let you set up "alias domains". Any mail that arrives at GMail for a user in that alias domain gets mapped to your main domain. So "user@legacy.boggle.org" == "user@boggle.org" as far as Google is concerned.

fastmail.fm, if you pay for an "enhanced" account, let you set up virtual domains with up to 500 aliases, and those aliases can be internal (i.e., fastmail.fm users) or external.

So my MXes now point to fastmail's incoming SMTP boxes. Anything for anyone at boggle.org who isn't me goes to user@legacy.boggle.org, anything for me goes to me@fastmail.fm.

It'll take some time to migrate all my filters/etc across, but I reckon it'll be worth it to be a paying customer and not have to be concerned about any of the stuff one ought to be concerned about when hosting with Google.

Calendar/contacts is still unsolved, will have to leave those with Google for now. There just isn't any really good alternative that isn't basically just moving from one faceless corporate who has no cause to give a shit to another.
