 From my perspective, I don't see the one BIG list as bad, but it would 
be VERY helpful if folks could label messages more succinctly and 
restrict discussion to rather specific aspects.

And, documenting what's been discussed is CRITICAL! It is madness to try 
to sift through these messages to get to the "implementable" aspects.

I also see problems with "who can do what", especially from an OO.o 
perspective. I think many of us don't know or understand the 
implementation details of what's going on here.

Case in point -- the message about the "VM for the wiki" being 
established. OK, now what.
