Hopefully not muddying the waters, but a new "debian-science-users" list
could be created and "debian-science" left for package concerns (or
package/user overlap?).  The new list would have the advantage of being
explicitly user-centric in name.  It would also be a fresh place to
intice back any users that may have left this list due to the increased
focus on packaging.

The downsides are having yet-another-list, and that purely user-oriented
folks that are still here would need to move.
