my comment was aimed at the plan to reduce the volume on the main mailing 
list by encouraging some components to move onto their own lists (rather 
than httpclient itself).

i'm willing to accept that httpclient has proved a great success on it's a 
single list. (who's to say whether it would have been more or less 
successful if it had stayed on the main mailing list.)

but as a plan for reducing the volume on the main commons list, single 
component mailing lists has proved unsuccessful. no other component has 
volunteered to move to their own list. whenever a move has been proposed, 
it's been rejected by the component's committers.
