myself.  The old timers can safely ignore the list, knowing that
anything important would have to be proposed on one of the regular

Although, on the second hand, remember how hard it was to get people to
use #lounge for off topic stuff and #forge for on topic?  Setting up
such a list might not do what we expect.  Still, I think it'd be a good
