Alternatively, one could create a python-dev profile on roundup and
encourage people to add python-dev to the nosy list when discussion
needs to be broaden. This way replies to all will be posted in both
places.  Once discussion gets too specialized, someone can remove
python-dev from the "nosies." No new code is required to set this up
as far as I can tell.
