I think I was the only one strongly opposed, and I was
expressing my opinion based on experience.  Anything that
excludes people as a matter of principle isn't good.  I
think making it an institutional thing is a really bad
idea.  If everyone else thinks it's grand, go ahead --
but review occasionally to make sure everyone still
feels that way as new people join the list. :-)

Here's a counter-proposal that I think alleviates those
concerns, and can still garner some of the benefits.
Don't make it something based on a particular time;
focus calls instead on specific topics at need.  If there's
some particular area that several people want to bang
heads on in realtime, propose doing it and see who's
interested and what time works best for them.  That gives
everyone a chance to participate in the decision about
how important the call is and when it should be.

And give several days' notice so people can catch up on the
email, and someone needs to report back to the list.

How does that sound?  Or maybe something in between?
