This was the reason the list was created years ago.  People got tired
of reading my comments and few people were involved in embedded
development at that time :-)  People with no interest in embedded didn't
want to hear about it.

I don't know why anyone would care if they have to subscribe to
multiple lists to get the information they need.  There isn't any need
to cross post and I don't think this is done very much or at all.  There
have been a few times early in the -embedded days that I have taken
topics from the embedded list to the -dev list, but this isn't necessary
any more because the interested parties are on both.

Personally, it doesn't make any difference to me, I subscribe to lots
of lists.  I think everyone that said "no" so far also subscribes to 
lists, I wonder how many people will want multiple lists?
