That's fine. Just realize that the natural consequence of this is  
that developers are probably going to leave #drupal and just hang out  
in #drupal-dev, the awesome stuff that our contributors are  
constantly doing will be shuffled away out of public view, we'll have  
fewer cross-overs of 'newbies' to 'contributors', and peoples' first  
impression to Drupal will be a room where people ask for help and  
receive no reply.

This is why I think keeping #drupal-support for people who need/want  
to provide support and making #drupal a general chat is preferable to  
simply swapping #drupal and #drupal-support. But of course, whatever  
you decide is what we'll go with. Let me know and I'll make a front  
page post, and we can put this issue to rest once and for all.
