Actually, I have been thinking about offering this very service.  I have
at least two permanently-connected machines I would be able to run such
a list from (jcomm.uoregon.edu and hexadecimal.uoregon.edu), and this
list is small enough and low enough in traffic that I could even run the
list manually.

If people are interested I could create a list on my work machine,
hexadecimal.uoregon.edu with all the current names.  I think the only
question is what we'd want to call the list -- mini-lit?

I wouldn't attach any strings to hosting the list, and I would honor any
subscription or unsubscription requests sent to the list-request or
owner-list addresses.  If I get ambitious I could probably even create
a digest version in addition to the simple mail reflector.
