Hmm, why not combine them?

So far, our lists have been split on activity type, not by code
submodule. I think that's the right approach.

So, dev@ as a default, but with a strong focus on the Erlang side of
things, marketing@ for everything from promotion through to brand,
l10n@ for anything to do with translation, etc.

Instead of having two front-end lists for different front-end
projects, let's have one place for front-end people. That could be
used for anything from Futon, Fauxton, our main website, or anything
else front-end-y.

My concern is that we already have quite a lot of lists, and while I
think it's good that we've been in an expansionist phase, the downside
is that each list balkanises conversation.
