I think you're quite uncommon in that setup. For obvious reasons, but I've
never heard of anybody other than you doing that :)

The experience from the pgadmin lists is that a lot of people have the
lists filtered into folders that they don't check often (or at all). So
they don't notice the migraiton message. But they start noticing once all
the list mail shows up in their inbox instead.

It might well be that we end up getting the other half of people when we do
it this order, but we definitely at a *lot* of people in that first bucket.
