I was thinking it might be the other way around.  There really isn't that 
much advanced discussion on this list, and the advanced imps who know how 
to code generally want to do things their own way.  Another factor is the 
propagation lag since all mail will have to go through Jeremy who 
probably already has plenty of other things to do.  Add in our natural 
aversion to change (why post to a new list if the old one works just 
fine) and I think the only posts to a moderated advanced list will be 
imps who for some reason don't want newbie imps to see their message.

Just my two cents.  I'll be on both lists.
