It was late when I posted that, so maybe it was the lack of sleep talking.
But even still, I guess my point is that I don't think that to groups need
to be isolated, separated but not mutually exclusive .

I also agree with the separation of devel and community lists.  Its like

You know what, so do I... there is a need for organizing the community at
this point and a separation of devel and users will accomplish a lot in my
personal view. As I said earlier, the one thing that I would not like to see
is an isolation of the two groups (if it can be helped anyway). The low bar
to entry would help ensure that users making the jump into the development
of Moko items will not have much to imped them. There may be other thing
that users would need to make that jump when they feel that they are ready
to do so. For now, even with what is purposed here... I am not sure that it
would end there to help (yeah even Mom) users jump into Moko development.
The only other thing that I can do at this point is keep an eye... see that
things don't go south.
