yep, that's the negative side of having only one mailing list for 
development and user support topics.

we are a relatively small community, so it's hard to separate all the 
different "worlds".
and it's also nice to see simple users slowly becoming developers!

i don't know there is a need and a way to better separate the users and 
mostly, we have to rely on the users not to hijack topics :-)

but, maybe, we could find a way to better tell the people that they 
don't have to read every mails getting in through a mailing list, that 
they can pick the threads that are interesting (and understandable) to them!
i know many people that have the feeling that they have to read (and 
understand) everything... it's even rather common...
