Why are we even having this discussion?  When did mailing lists become
such a heavyweight operation that we have to discuss at length whether
they should even exist?  Just create the user/dev/commits/issues lists
and be done with it.  If nobody uses the user list, so be it.  I think
it's just more confusing to start moving traffic from one list to
another.  Keep things consistent.

The developers should be "listening" to the user list so that they can
answer questions.  They can't just hide in the dev list and not listen
to the community.
