I don't disagree with your post - but just trying it on kwlug-disc, if 
it turns out to not be viable, leaves a lot of people with a lot of 
garbage flying by that may persist for some time after the experiment 
has failed.

Definitely, trying it somewhere else than kwlug-disc is good. If it 
all just works out, it can be integrated after the fact - even if 
awkwardly so. Much less awkward than trying to split it off later.
