So, to answer my own question: our biggest question/concern was really
the explosion in our logs. After analyzing our logs and realizing this
is very likely a botnet burst attack that we can't really do anything
about (other than weather it for the next day or so), we've reduced
several services from servicename.* to servicename.warn in

I think this attack will allow me to convince my coworkers that
greylisting is a good idea in the medium-term, though. They have been
on the fence for quite some time. Unless somebody wants to donate a
barracuda appliance (or a box so we can build our own equivalent) to
ibiblio.... *nudge, wink* ...
