You'd think this hasn't all been discussed. But it has. Extensively.
*If* you want to re-hash it here, then please, please: do some
homework first. Use your favourite search engine and try to dig up

The list's openness is *by design*, not by mistake. It's not because
all of "them" didn't come up with the Right Idea(TM)

Yes, sounds a bit harsh and all. But if you don't do some research
we're stuck in an endless loop.
