By the way, I just remembered, there's a Supybot plugin that allows
people to communicate in two different channels on two different
networks.  I've seen it work, although it was a bit weird and took some
getting used to, but it does work.

So in this case, you could theoretically create channels on Freenode
that you think people will flock to, and whatever they post in that
channel will also be seen (and hopefully responded to) by the
sister-channel on GIMPNet.  And vice versa.

Thus handle the marketing aspect of reaching more users without
upheaving existing GIMPNet community participants.
