Re: Mailing lists, redux

I vote for #1. The infatructure is already in place, the overhead is taken care of. I'm a fan of keeping it simple, and not fixing things that aren't broken :) Changing the mailing list infastructure just for nominal reasons seems pointless and will only serve to create more work for others :)
