Mailing lists suck when searching for solutions...hence the public  
facing "Performance and Scalability" forum. We'll continue to have  
requests for ever more micro "groups", for which forums are the only  
bucket we have today.

Of course, finished solutions/recipes/tips/etc. should go in the  
handbook -- John, is there something specific you want to cover in  
that respect? A "performance and scalability" section underneath the  
Configuration and Customization book is probably the right place.

/me mutters something about groups.drupal.org....
