We will have to consult with the thought police on that one.

Writing as list owner:

  <<Gadzooks I hate typing that.>>

  Not immediately.  Initially I expect to publicise the list in
the various mailing list lists.  Wait until that hubbub dies down, and 
then move on to the web-based mailing list lists, until finally
hitting Usenet.

  Good point tho.  It may be wise to make subscriptions closed for the 
first month or so...  I won't put that on the web pages tho -- just
have the list refuse subscriptions.

Sooth.  It is not on a fast link (yet).
