That's an interesting idea, I personally would worry that it would
"ghettoize" the people seeking help.  People would come onto svlug@
and post questions and get shunted over to the other list, which
presumably not as many people would read.  At least, that's my fear. 
Bill K., has that happened at all in LUGOD?
