I have 2 comments:

- You mentioned "Out of the many hundreds of lists we've added
  [listhelper] to, exactly one person has decided not to use it."
  What was that person's motivation?

- We at Savannah represent a strong stand against services that keep
  their source code private (such as SourceForge, of course). Hence,
  we need a permanent location where the listhelper source code can be
  downloaded, if possible with instructions on how to set it up at
  other places. If the license is AGPL, all the better :)
