[PYTHON META-SIG] Creating sub-newsgroups

Hmm. On the one hand it is good from publicity standpoint to have
subgroups, on the other hand the mailing lists (at least the ones that
I'm on) have the advantage of having a high s/n ratio.

There's also the question of missing items, which is much easier in a
newsgroup, but I guess that could be cured by two-way gatewaying like
for the main newsgroup.

If the windows-sig discussed this, why not use them as a testcase? I
guess that that's also the biggest group (although this may spark
linux and tk subgroups too, which will probably also be big from the
amoutns of postings).
