In this overall exchange I became aware that there was a 
list for avr-libc.  We'll track it down for sure now :-).

Sounds to me like a VERY good idea.

And as you note, it keeps the other lists for specific 
function on track.  I will admit to feeling a little guilty 
about some of the stuff I posted to this list but I had no 
idea there was another place that would be more 
appropriate :-(.

Since these items are so interlocked, a list where everyone 
gets together and can hash out things like this would 
simply make excellent sense.
