I just want to mention that even as a project leader, I benefit from
this: when I'm swamped, I simply ignore the user list.  Not a nice
thing to do, perhaps, but given the choice between moving the project
forward and helping a new user, with often very limited time, I think
it's the best solution possible.  Of course I do help in the user list
when I can, but I mostly encourage more experienced users to help new
ones, so that our small dev team can spend its limited time moving the
project forward.
