Subscribing to two lists might be a deterrent to some users if they 
think of it as one product. Now, this is maybe where I'm out on a limb, 
the idea that we want to think of this as one coherent system from a 
user's perspective, and not completely loosely coupled projects that 
have little relationship to each other beyond using standard protocols.

But agreed, a cosmo system administrator is a different population. 
Perhaps with scooby you have two distinct groups, those who want to host 
a scooby service and end users of our scooby service.
