The danger with that is the only people who go there are beginners
looking for advice. Without advisers also, it would quickly wither.

How has the beginners' mailing list worked out, in this regard? At
least with a ML it's possible to set aside some part of the day to
answering questions... the same is not really possible for 5-hour-old
conversations on IRC.
