I thought this might come up ;)

The one *major* downside, of course, is that it will be inconvenient
for many people to learn and filter for a new address.  My current
suggestions don't involve any work for people who don't want things to
change.  I suggest we not get bogged down or overload the mailing list
any more this week.  Hence, I propose we punt this discussion until
next Wednesday.  I have calendared it in, but feel free to remind me
if it seems that I've forgotten.

Let's finish the existing questions that I've proposed before tackling
the next question.

Best Regards,
