Ok, one very big convenience is simply that gimpnet has
been around for a long time, and we already use it.

It's a pretty big advantage, it means that if you move your
project channel away from there, people will be confused
and not immediately find you.

At any rate, is this discussion about actually shutting down
GimpNET ? Is that even in our power ?

If not, I suggest this discussion be more reasonably focused
on potentially migrating the #foundation channel to freenode,
if that's what we really want (it's not like you can flip a switch
and every project that hangs out on gimpnet will agree to
follow you to freenode).
