A question along these lines came up for some other Ruby projects in the
recent past, and at the time it seemed like the consensus was to keep these
kinds discussions on ruby-talk (and optionally, for FXRuby, the foxgui-users
list as well). I think the actual discussion was about splitting ruby-talk
up into a bunch of topic-specific mailing lists (e.g. GUIs, databases, XML,
web development), and most people were against it because they didn't want
to try to keep up with a bunch of different lists.

So, for now, I think I'll keep things as they are. Compared to the overall
traffic on ruby-talk, the FXRuby-related discussions are still small
potatoes. If it does get to the point that there's a distracting amount of
FXRuby discussion, I'd probably set up an fxruby-users list at that point.
