There are at least 3 and maybe 6 or more of us who still read 
c.l.py (though I've dropped back to newsgroup so I can skip 
the braindead threads). As a partial solution, perhaps we 
could use some self-discipline and sometimes say "kick it to 
c.l.py". I, for one, would be willing to _help_ (not "assume 
responsibility for"!) monitoring threads of this sort and 
summarizing back to the dev list.

For ideas on which Guido is > -0, I think this might be a good 
way to guage reaction.
