3) Have a distributed or federated network for holding the entries.

Consider an nntp network separated from the Usenet which has a set of
policies across servers in order to make it more paste-like and less
binary distribution prone. Uploading a paste means that paste gets
distributed across many different servers, so one operator going bankrupt
is not a big problem.

Each nntp post has a unique identifier. Surely somebody can write a
client for fetching a "paste" (aka post) by its id.

You can fetch every paste in a given group and take care of your local
repository, or just leave the pastes in the servers and access them when
you need them.
