Careful, Nicola used very bad wording: hs is not proposing to unify 
*all* mail lists into one, he's proposing that we merge all development 
mail lists into one and all users mail list into one and result in just 
a single community of developers and a single community of users.

I see *great* value on this proposal as the first *real* step in doing 
something to force people to collaborate.

Right now, with the excuse of caring about his users, phoenix is 
effectively implementing stuff that is not decided by the avalon 
community. This means that the avalon PMC has no legal oversight on 
what's happening there. This is a serious concern. Bringing communities 
back together might slow down things a little on phoenix land but it is 
definately a good thing for Avalon in general.

And this is why I voted +1
