The Munich thing was quite a while ago now and it must be said that a lot has changed, some of it as a direct result of contributions by people working on the project. Much of the infrastructure that they had to struggle to build would be easier (read: cheaper) to set up today.

I don't know how much that kind of thing factored in to their estimate, though.
