At a meta-level, I've seen this dismissal and plea to just send to
users_at_instead happen a few times recently on dev@.
 I'd like to ensure we don't hinder potential contributors by sending out
the wrong tone in their initial interactions with dev@. We welcome all
contributors with open arms. To me, Zem's initial post was perfectly
appropriate for dev@ and given the ensuing discussions including some that
apparently happened off-list, it was (and is) a good catalyst for
discussion and bringing those discussions back to the list. In other
words, in my opinion, a very good and on-topic dev@ post.

Back to the topic at hand, my take on this feature is it's probably a good
idea to figure out how to solve it...the landscape over a decade ago when
we started out isn't the same as it is now. -- justin

P.S. Hi Zem! =)
