I agree with Ferenc on this one.  Leave well enough alone.  Splitting up
the list will only end up generating another list with more cross posting
that we all have to keep up with.  Renaming lists is always a bad idea, it
just causes thousands of people to have to spend time reconfiguring their
mail readers, add up the cost of that and see if there is enough benefit
to justify it. :)
