Yes , using modem or isdn makes it even slower.

I vote for this. maintaining the informations should be easier with it.

I can't speak for others, but after reading the thread exactly this way would 
be very good. Bugzilla maybe could have different groups and the bugreports 
can go then to the right mailinglist. That would make bugzilla faster then 
too. A search field could help to identify the group (example: kmail => 
network or kde) to avoid difficulties with that.
