I agree completely. Actually, I think the current situation of three lists could
probably be trimmed down to two even (one for numpy, one for scipy), but I won't
lose any sleep over it one way or the other. The numpy list has both development
and "user" topics on it and seems to do just fine. I think scipy could just as
easily work with a unified mailing list. People often send "development" related
posts to the scipy-user list already anyway.
