I'm not sure how your solution helps this.  Can you explain?

I'm not a fan.  I want to ensure that people show up here on the dev 
list, interact with others, and simply *engage*.  While I haven't looked 
closely in the last week, my personal impression of things is that we 
already have quite a bit of "conversation" on JIRA that never is visible 
on the dev list, which isn't very good, IMO.

So I guess I'd probably need to understand better what this does for us, 
and why it wouldn't have those negative community effects.
