Uh... Im not sure I should even bother to respond to this tirade but
I'll try.

I *did not* try to discredit IRC.

What is abundantly clear, however is that a LARGE number of people
interested in stable (and probably testing) want the development to be
on the lists, as its slower, you can think about it more before posting
replies, and theres a nice hierarchical history.

IRC has its uses. it seems to work VERY well for unstable (you KNOW I
know this as you are perfectly well aware that I hang around on IRC from
time to time.

so... you want my solution?

Do stable (perhaps testing too) development primarily on list, and do unstable dev primarily on IRC.

no, its not a magic bullet, but its a start.
