Right.  So the question is, what is (or should be) the contents of the
messages that are posted only to haskell@, but *not* crossposted to
café?  Because I think this set of messages is (or should be) empty,
which suggests that we

      1) remove the people subscribed to haskell-cafe@ from haskell@
      2) automatically post all messages to haskell@ to -cafe as well
      3) post announcements to haskell@ without any crossposting.

This way, most people will subscribe to -cafe and get a single copy of
each message, not miss out on any important stuff, and as an added
benefit discussion will mostly go to that list.  People who only want
low-bandwith subscription to announcements, HWN, and the like, may
subscribe to haskell@ only.

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
