Thanks for the heads up.  We’ll start planning load testing of our Oauth/Profile server stacks.  

I would also like to claim some sort of milestone of quality for Oauth/Profile servers.  Is it safe to call us at Beta?  

* all features implemented
* testing has completed at least one pass
* some bugs to fix
* load testing yet to be performed

However, since Hello is integrating using our OAuth flow, we will see *some* load on our OAuth infrastructure (fxa-oauth-server and fxa-profile-server) whereas previously these services were getting only trivial load.
