AGH for a couple of reasons: first of all, if I had a question about
whether datagrids worked on Rodeo and wasn't sure if it should be on
this list or the Rodeo list, the subject line would look like

[OT][Datagrid][Rodeo] actual text

which would start to get unreadable very quickly. And my inbox would
start to fill up with [] tags even quicker. Second, many questions
that seem to be about one topic are actually about another: witness
the tRev on Win7 discussion becoming a thread about sockets, etc. It's
even harder on newbies because you have to have a pretty fair grip on
things in the first place to know what tags to insert, so it would be
a disincentive to asking questions.
