[Python-ideas] Rename python-dev?

This is a crazy idea that popped into my head recently.

What if python-dev were to be renamed to something like python-internals? (Yeah, that's a bad name, but my naming skills suck...) Basically, something that gets across the idea that it's for development of Python, not in Python.

Python-dev would visibly disappear, but mails sent to python-dev would be redirected to the new name.

BTW, in reality, it's not an uncommon mistake. I know of a few mailing lists built for development *with* a tool that end in -dev, such as asmjit-dev.
