	That would be *really* nice! The only thing I'm left wondering is the  
volume we'll be managing going forward, being more open, in case we  
have to dedicate an entire mailing list to such mails. In the mean  
time, I'd say this one, mp-dev, would be most appropriate, since (and  
I hope I'm not mistaken) we'll be mainly dealing with technical  
documentation which we'll want our developers reviewing anyhow.

	So you have my approval for this change in direction. Any comments,
