What settings are you using, out of interest?

Please feel free to discuss on glasgow-haskell-users@ which is lower 
volume.  I don't particularly like setting up new mailing lists unless 
there's likely to be an ongoing need - we have quite a few defunct lists 
on haskell.org now.

Sure, that would be fine too.
