I'm not against it at all. It's just that I don't really see the need
for yet another specialised mailinglist. But I'm not at all against
the creation of it.
(Maybe debian mailingnlist should auto-destruct after 2 weeks of silence.
That way the enourmous growth of (as far as I know mostly silent)
mailinglists could possibly be stopped, and the mailinglists that
appear to be usefull will continue to be stopped).
