Oh, yes.  But then one has to read through all the messages and gather 
the 'lore' of the list to learn what has been done.

You see, my day job is developing standards.  I work in the IETF and 
IEEE on standards.  Particularly in the IETF we have noted that there is 
tremendous lore in the lists that we MUST capture so that someone coming 
along later will get it right without having to plow through sometimes 
1000s of emails.  I got burned with RFC 2410; we had fun writing it.  
Everyone at the time knew what we meant about a cipher with key length 
of Zero and what that meant in ISAKMP.  5 years later we had a few 
companies whos programmers had not grown up with english and definitely 
did not know about things like ITAR. The result was they did not 
interoperate with other IPsec implementations.  Ouch. (they included the 
ISAKMP key length payload which you are not suppose to do if the 
cipher's key length is a constant and if you get an ISAKMP payload you 
are not expecting you are suppose to reject the exchange.  All we had to 
do was include that little point in the RFC, but did not) So for the 
work I am in charge of, I try to capture the list lore and see that 
someone gets it consolidated.

Just my 1 cent worth.

Back to looking at what hardware I want to get sometime soonish.
