To be honest, I only see a number of downsides to SO as a replacement
for -misc, and one upside: it's an alternative to setting up a new
mailing list, which is a PITA due to the joys of and
combating spam.

And I don't blame phk at all for preferring to avoid that. You want a
mailing list to Just Work, and not consume a lot of time for
administration. But there are good reasons for concern that it won't
turn out that way.

I wish I could suggest a clever solution, but this is a bit of a dilemma.
