Ok, this is getting tedious guys.

How about the following course of action:

1. Start "beginners at haskell.org" now. There seems to be more-or-less a  
consensus on this name.

2. Take all further discussion about the list's charter, etc. to the  
new list.

3. If decision is made to rename the list, kill  
"beginners at haskell.org", create the new list
    and repeat with step 1.
