Good point. That could/should be tested with a [VOTE] too, just to be sure.

Sorry, I should have explained what I mean before.

We would have these two addresses:

Everyone subscribed to the forrest and lenya dev lists can send mails to
these addresses.

Every mail sent to any of them is automatically posted on both:

with [lefo] added to the header to signal that the reply will go to both
lists and a reply-to header set to a list.

Basically it's an automatic and transparent cross-posting.
Actually, I don't even know if it's easy to set-up or not O:-)
