I know you're right Eric but that's probably where interdisciplinarity
breaks down.

  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.
