[dev] Mailing lists sucks.

The absolutely works thing with free software development
is all those mailing lists clobbering your inbox.

Mailing lists also adds another complexity on top of an
already horridly sucking group of protocols.

I suggest switching to NNTP (which most e-mail clients
support, and does not suck just as much) For a not all
too sucking server implementation I would refer you to

It is possible to set up NNTP to also act as a mailing
list using an e-mail gateway. Few also setup Web forum
gateways or Web archives, but I would not recommend that.

It is suggested in the RFC:s that NNTP clients let you
specify which threads you are interested in receiving,
but I do not know if any client has implemented this
(I have not looked.)
