I'm in favour of this suggestion. In my past experience with small/immature
communities splitting discussions like this, I also agree it's probably
best to wait some weeks/months. So after (not before!) the level of
offtopic (i.e. non "-dev") threads becomes too high, only then the
discussion is split into several lists.
