hm ... I understand exactly what you mean and I agree, if we would speak of
a company with different big departments here. But in our project I think
it is totally ok that we have two different lists and the people who are
strongly interested in both parts should subscribe both lists. The
advantage imho is to not flood the dev@ list with unrelated stuff ...
