That's good; I'm just trying to encourage people to run the betas
because that way we actually get user feedback. It is possible that a
new system, like the mime system, has a major shortcoming that we don't
realise unless people actually try it out.

Mailing lists are most appropriate for discussing things with lots of
developers. But for a change to happen, really you have to file a bug in
bugzilla otherwise the thread gets lost and forgotten about. The bug
will stop it being forgotten.

It is perfectly acceptable to file "change requests" in bugzilla, even
if they are not technically bugs.
