Yeah - definitely.  It would be nice to allow an easy way for people
to get into the discussion and get a good overview of where we already
are (what's worked and what hasn't) before they even get to the
mailing list, basically.  Apart from anything, the list is going to
become repeatative quickly!  It's a good reason why splitting these
discussions off to a seperate list will help too.
