It's our mess but it's still useful to discuss things publicly.

Hmm... maybe we should put a name for the main pool that's different from
the empty one now...

The kill list idea is important in itself - we need to be able to put

doesn't need to be emphasized.

Due to Ted's trademark stuff we should probably not put it at ms.gzigzag.org...
How about asking the department for an alias machine (mediaserver.it.jyu.fi)?
