these are a lot of lists for the (relatively) low traffic ;-) But
nevertheless splitting the "rtems-users" list into two may make sense,
simply to allow sorting mail traffic into different categories.

What should not happen is that the RTEMS community is split into
"users" and "developers". In the past I have seen many people starting
as "users" step by step became "developers" since they needed new
functionality for their projects. So we should make sure to encourage
new users also to register for the "rtems-devel" mailing list.
