/Creating/ the mailing list is indeed the easy part -- I can do it in
about 5 minutes.  It sounds like there's not quite consensus yet that
all the requirements for a sig are in place.  Personally, I think if you
put together a sig page like for the existing sigs, and there's a clear
mission that the list is going to be used to get work done, I have no
problems creating it.

Sigs should by their nature have a finite lifetime.
