I've noticed that we fuss about job postings a lot more on this list
than on other mailing lists.  I'm on a few programmer-related mailing
lists that have no rules against recruiters at all, and there are a
bunch of job postings.

I propose we have these rules:

 * Job postings should start with [JOB] so that people can filter them out.
 * For the time being, recruiters are allowed.
 * The job must still *actually use* Python, and it must be in the Bay Area.
 * Any other rules I'm forgetting still apply.
