Where's the difference in watching and de-spamming
between four lists and one list, when the absolute
number of messages is the same?

My experience from other -dev lists (i.e. xindice)
is that some days there's no traffic at all
and on other days there are several dozens of CVS-commit messages,
that's why I'd prefer not to receive the CVS messages.
