I guess the concern is that the dominance of setuptools message is  
scaring away people with old-fashioned distutils questions.  There  
haven't been many of those lately, and some of them seem to have  
received no response.  I don't think that splitting the list in two  
is a solution, though.  There's not enough traffic to warrant that  
(except for a brief spurt a week or so ago...)
