Why not merge the numpy-user and numpy-discussion lists?  This would be 
another step towards unifying the Numeric/numarray/numpy communities.  
Then the 'numpy-discussions' name would be an assert, rather than an 
unfortunate by-product of a bygone era.  The traffic on 
numpy-discussions is quite light, and some of it is already about 
comparisons and distinctions between the three packages.  I doubt many 
of the current numpy-discussions subscribers would mind if the 
discussion gradually became more focused on numpy, especially since 
Numeric is now dead and, well, the list *is* called numpy-discussion ;)
