I'm beginning to think that splitting the list in two parts may be a good
idea afterall -- this list, which will remain as it is for newbie questions,
and a second, *moderated* list for "advanced" questions (called
circle-wizards or something).  I'd be willing to moderate the list if I
can figure out how, since I've never been a mailing list moderator before.
circle-wizards would not allow newbie traffic or anything answered by an 
FAQ or any of the documentation (optimally, I should finish coding.doc

Is there any support for this idea?
