Ah, but note that I didn't propose to divert the posts about
development of the bindings themselves, rather only the posts about
developing with the bindings, ie scripts etc. It's just that the
description of dev@ and users@ to posts of people trying to develop
with the bindings are not really clear where to go. In this case, I
don't think we're splitting something into its own list: what I want
currently doesn't exist: traffic about using the bindings.

Also, note that some of the Subversion devs have said to be unable to
keep up with the tremendous volume of users@ mail. Posts from bindings
users benefit - even more so than other users posts - from being read
by developers. Also, if we are to give them more love - a good idea -
it would be good to know what our users are doing with them (without
having to wade through 100s of messages each day on users...?).

That is nothing irreversible though, we could always pull the plug on
the bindings-users mailing list if it doesn't do what we want...
