A feature of forums, actually *the* feature that make allot of 
sub-forums possibly in the first place, is that moderators can move 
posts... email miss-post is not different from forum miss-post so this 
should be a no problem.

If we fix so reply go right, make it possibly for power user to get 
first posting go right then moderators can take care of the rest.

News might be a better 'backend' then mail. Can use equaly many 
subforums and mail can move as the moderator moves them.

mail<-->news is then a simple step. Nothing (apart from moderators can't 
move miss-post) stops lists from being equally divided. can we subscribe 
to hierarchies (this forum and all present and future sub-forum) it 
would be OK.

I prefere a list... or a newsgroup really... that's how i read this list 
(gmane). Sometimes I use gmain web interface but I newer tried to post.
