Won't work -- never did, never does, never will. More than half of the
posts on help-hurd should actually go to bug-hurd; and more than half of
the posts that should go to help-hurd, go to bug-hurd... Other projects
with separate lists get simiar experience: it only increases management
overhead, causes fragmentation, confusion, and redundancy.

And we can always think about splitting them up again, when the traffic
really becomes a problem...
