Not sure I agree with the annoyance issue. It's already got a few people
thinking about some of the issues so I think it's useful.

If we lose some readers of -current because a report of development
problems is too much for them then they probably shouldn't be -current
subscribers in the first place. Hackers is supposed to be the mailing
list for people generally interested in hacking on FreeBSD, current
*should* be for people who want to see long tedious reports on the
problems in the current branch.

Also, the length of the report should fall dramatically as the problems
are addressed and a sudden long report will immediately focus developers
attention to the cause.
