This is a list rename, since Doug at least wanted es3.x-discuss left  
around. I'm loath to bulk-subscribe people, and I believe everyone on  
the es3.x-discuss list is also on es-discuss already. Sending a  
subscribe message to the -request alias is easy enough in case  
someone isn't already there.

Really, the subset relations that were supposed to govern the  
committee prior to Harmony, in my opinion, obligated Ecma TC39  
members to be on both lists. Interested onlookers felt the same need,  
as far as I can tell. If there is still someone out there who still  
rejects a future beyond ES3.1, I'm not going to force him or her to  
join the es-discuss list.
