I don't think that the intent is to categorize developers, but rather to
provide different forums for different needs.
* If I don't understand how to use something in Boost.Threads, I'll consult
* If I want to contribute to the development of Boost.Threads (or just watch
Bill and Peter play mind-chess), I'll go to boost-developers.

This proposed separation of concerns is (at least to me) an indication of a
maturing library, where the needs of users are at a totally different level
than the low-level, highly specialized discussions between Boost

The value of boost-users could be tremendous.
