JMTCW, I vote for just one list. I can mentally filter out the ones I don't
care about and it's easier to figure out which list to post to that way.

As someone who's helped set up and determine mailing list policy, it's MUCH
easier to have as few lists as possible. I think the idea of a "newbie" list
is good, but everything else is really relevant to everyone involved. When
creating new mailing lists, a good question to ask is: "How many people that
would join this list would NOT need to join any others?" e.g. a list for
people that work on the localization aspect of a project is good idea-- most
localizers don't need to be on the development list.
Also, I don't think the traffic on this list warrants "splitting up"
