I'd like to second that, with one minor addition: no crossposting, *please*.
I got kind of fed up with the iterators discussions when I got in after a
long weekend, and had to read through three copies of several threads (the
iterators list, python-list and python-dev) and all were sufficiently long
(and only quickly skimmed by me in all cases) that I couldn't remember
whether I'd already seen that message... I ended up skipping whole
discussions, which defeated the point of being on the list.

If people keep up the crossposting, I'd rather have the discussions take
place on python-dev or python-list to start with.
