Could we do something like this:

    * Announce the list switch;
    * Set up post forwarding so that everything that's sent to
      list_at_s.t.o also ends up at list_at_s.a.o;
    * Have an auto-reply in place so that anyone who posts to @s.t.o
      gets a reply to the tune of, "did you know about @s.a.o?"
    * After a couple months of that, just switch off the @s.t.o list

Anyone who doesn't migrate during that time, most probably isn't
interested any more.
