Screw it. I say we go back to three non-moderated, non-announce groups:
-user, -devel, and -private. And -private may NOT be used just because
it's low-volume. Learn how to deal with the volume (procmail and
threaded mail reader go a long way). Keep -announce, -devel-announce,
and -security-announce: the audiences are sufficiently disting. Get rid
of everything else.
