I never experienced that "talk over" as an annoyance, and I'd
rather like to keep the single channel model. It makes it easier
for a dev interact with users, e.g. calls for testers or working
on a fix remotely.

If the channels would be split, I would probably join only
#rockbox-dev normally, because I don't normally *need* the user
talk, even though it doesn't annoy me. And while user feedback
would be worse that way, I would still be annoyed by other
things in the dev channel which exist right now and are *not*
user related (e.g. talk about 3rd and 4th steps before even
doing the 1st).

Just my 0.02,

Jens
