	These calls are usually made publically so that
everyone on the lists knows that some one has already made
the request and thus making sure that the people so requested
don't get their mailboxes flooded with private requests.
	Really, which would you rather see, Thomas?  One
public call for a private discussion, or about 25 private ones -
most of which would have shown up after the conversation ended
or had already been moved to private?  Personally, I'd rather
see the public - it makes for less e-mail to flush from the
INBOX.
