I take issue with Benson's  assertion that there are not enough people 
to support any one of the individual projects.
I can't speak for the other lists, but XML-RPC was serving its small 
interest group very well.
Merging it into this monstrosity will eventually drive people to unsub 
thereby losing what was working well.
Doing such a thing without troubling to inquire is sheer hubris.
