There is a lot more traffic on these meta-discussions about list  
content then there are job postings or actual useful content.

  1) allow job posting, but have guidelines that prescribe a well  
defined subject line so they can be filtered
      job posting can be interesting to the broader group in that  
they show where python is being used
  2) quit clogging up what could be a useful mail list by these  
discussions of what should be in the list
