It is an idea worth keeping in mind. Renaming lfs-discuss isn't so hard,
since lfs-discuss@ can become an alias to lfs-dev, it's just that people
will have to make one small change to their mail filters and add
lfs-dev, if this is what we end up doing.

We're already using those lists (lfs-book and blfs-book) for quit some
time now (since March 11th or so). The name is fine, they're not really
public lists (although anybody can subscribe to it, etc).
