Imho a forum would be a superior venue for this type of discussion, because
people have to effectively opt in to read the thread. With the email
discussion list, we all get every email, whether we regard this discussion
as cruft or valuable discourse. (and it's a lot easier to quickly refer
someone to a URL than a previous message in a long-winded thread)
