Very helpful topic. A few tips would be nice.
#1. Instead of running a vanilla Minecraft server or Bukkit server. Use an optimized version called Spigot http://www.spigotmc.org/

#2. Install Nospawnchunks and Clearlagg bukkit plugins on your spigot server.

#3. Set the pi's GUI memory split to 16. And of course run from console without Raspian GUI

#4. Overclock your pi as high as possible. (only if your not using a class 6 or 10 sdcard)

#5. Be able to deal with a bit of lag here and there. Especially when exploring (generating) new chunks.

#6 Use MC Edit to generate lots of the world on your desktop/laptop computer. Then copy over the pre-generated world.

#7. Untested Run the server from a folder on a flashcard/ other usb2.0 device. Especially if you have a slow sdcard.

#8. Tell your players/friends to stick together on the map. Its more fun and less laggy.

#9. Set the view distance in the server properties file to < 3. The lower the faster.

Ok. Thats all I got. Someone with 10 friends should try it out.
Hey, I have that many freinds that play Minecraft...
I'll check back with a status report eventually.

QUICK QUESTION! Can I limit the time that someone can play on the server everyday to 2 hours?

My instructions (http://picraftbukkit.webs.com/pi-minecr ... ver-how-to) indicate how to install a spigot server etc they have been used to make the server in the guest post today!
Visit my website with the original instructions on it for both vanilla and Tekkit Lite Servers: www.picraftbukkit.webs.com
