My gut reaction: probably not.

Also telling is the fact that so many threads are begun and left to rot
(i.e. questions remain unanswered). My impression is that very few people
actually pay attention to the template-haskell list.

I suggest we abolish it in favour of ghc-users.  Any dissenters?  (I'd emit
