Its too bad, discussions of this size really warrant a more organized 
message system, like NNTP... but I have no idea if anyone at Apache is 
looking into this, or already has it implemented.  NTTP is much easier 
to manage wrt, sub contexts as well as reduces general net traffic, as 
every single message is not duplicated to each subscribers mail box.
