Well, do we have to keep a record of what ML each developer reads? Or
is post-commit review to be faced each times with dilemmas such as the
present: """does this core developer really read that mailing-list? should I
email him/her privately, or is that too intrusive? what about writing
to that other mailing-list? if they don't answer, did they at least see
the message amongst the other threads?"""

(this is a nice thing with pre-commit review: you can usually be sure
the developer will read your comments, unless there's something
seriously wrong with the setup)

My own preference would be to keep it that way. If python-dev becomes
annoying to read, then probably python-checkins isn't very exciting
either ;-)
(just MHO, of course)
