merging into development@ would be *quite* an "upgrade", and would
conform with prior consensus on virtually the same question.

that's how most people react to what they perceive as trolling.

i don't consider the "irc situation" relevant to this discussion. irc
"lives" a lot faster and can be a lot more confusing/distracting than a
mailing list. so if you want a unified user/developer channel separate
from the main channels, you can do that. not that your users will care
about this artificial split from #qt in the longer run, but it's your
call ...

you really have a talent for intentionally finding the most backwards
interpretation of everything ...
no, i *don't* agree with your plan. at all.
