I agree with Erik. If this list moves to c.o.l.alpha, I predict that volume
will double or triple, while the signal level will stay the same. It might
be somewhat easier to read as a newsgroup, but I think that we would lose
_much_ more than we'd gain.

The original poster complained about clueless UDB owners (like me :-) asking
questions that had been previously debated; does anyone think that those
questions would _decrease_ if we moved to a newsgroup?

'axp-kernel' sounds like a good idea to me!
