I'm for default reply to sender only.
I'm also for keeping one list.  I'm not trying to pick on Joe here,
But when I read this I though what do you mean by compiling problems?
Do you mean when something breaks because of a cvs issue?  If so that
should goto the list.  Do you mean people trying to compile blender
for the first time?  If so I don't think that that takes up very
much of the email that gets put on the list.  Finally if I'm confused
about what would go on the compiler problems mailing list, my guess is
other people will have the same problem.  I don't think its an effective

Just to make my reply more complicated ;)
I'd rather have too much email and skim and filter out the stuff I don't
want than too little. ;)  (I know kind of contradicts my first statement
but hey...)
