I have no desire to fracture the community or run parallel lists. My
argument is that we need to do some of the things Alan is suggesting
so that the community can move. We will know when the list can be
shut down based on the lack of traffic.

We do not have the option of automatically subscribing users to the
new list, so I am just saying we should use a "soft" approach where we
encourage people to the use the new lists and eventually we stop
monitoring and participating in the old lists ourselves.
