Ha. I never even *thought* of putting something like this in the
devguide. Thanks for the pointer. I'll try to make some time to polish
up my comments and put a PR together for that.

I've thought we should have some sort of "list info" page describing
things like this and giving some context for posters before now.
Possibly linked from the automatic footer the list adds. I don't know
who would be able to do something like that, though.

Thanks for your suggestions.
