afair it was bot times the same person, michael shiloh.
the change from "device-owners" to "support" was proposed and took place  
because sensible: the list was created for the few that owned already an  
fr to discuss support questions -- for people w/o neo/fr it was of rather  
platonic interest.
after switching to mass market and the subsequent increase of owners the  
name seemed not longer appropriate.
