I know that the casbah project did it. and we do it. you probably
want to set up an "anonymous" account with "display" access
to the queues in question.  I've never heard about a breakin though
rt, but that doesn't mean it can't happen.  For extra security, 
you could set up a wget to suck down the relevant html and 
only export daily snapshots to the public.
