If we leave the main list the 'distutils-sig', and just announce that
'catalog-sig' is retired, folks who want to follow the new list just
switch over.  All the archives (mailman / gmane / etc.) stay valid, but
the list goes into moderated mode.

Creating a third list and retiring both the existing ones is extra hassle
for no value, aside for a "cleanliness" issue on its name.
