Actually, I think more will be gained by the separation than is
lost. I'll be on both. Wouldn't have it any other way. But I
think that many potential contributors to either list are put of
by messages they perceive as "off-target". I want maximum input
in both areas, hence the desire to separate.

I'd be quite happy to find out my assumption is incorrect -- that
all the coders delight in the high level discussions and the
big topic thinkers are not bored by interminable coding discussions,
but experience suggests otherwise.
