As a new member to this list, I can tell you that searching for relevant old
content was effectively impossible, so I'm all for some way of doing that.

Please can I make a more radical suggestion, though: Drop the mailing list.
How about a GitHub repo - a specific one (with no code), specifically for
early ideas? Then, if an idea was accepted and turned into an issue to be
implemented, it could link back to that original discussion. GitHub is
easily searchable. It can email you if someone comments on an issue you have
raised, etc.

An alternative might be a StackOverflow section, but that wouldn't provide
such tight integration in the case of an issue being raised.

The new work you're doing would be a good way to populate the repo with its
initial content.
