Perhaps it would be useful to simply have all discussions on the
wiki-page? It would have to be organized better (not quite sure how well
that is possible?) I've had a lot of parallel discussions that jump from
email to wiki and back to email.
Also, surely it is possible to have the RFC/tagging only list not allow
reply to at least not have discussion fracture at that point?
