VFS mailing list

This is how I was envisioning it, something akin to the apache-modules list.

I have an unusual scenario with a VFS module. I'm not confident at this 
point if it's a bug or the details are too vague to submit it as one, 
however it'd be nice to ask other module developers if they've experienced 
it as well.

As far as the traffic, I think it benefits the VFS list more than 
samba-technical. If someone were to post an API question to 
samba-technical, I fear it'd be missed by the casual VFS developer who is 
more apt to answer it because they don't follow all regular samba-technical 
discussion. Or worse, a potential human resource lost by posting VFS 
questions and asking to respond via email because he/she doesn't want to 

I understand the feeling of Yet Another List and wish I could do more with 
providing or managing it.
