Honestly, my preference would be to simply remind ourselves, as a 
community, to keep it friendly. We're still a small enough group that it 
is possible to maintain a measure of community standards, simply by 
pointing them out if people *do* get snarky. (It's true that such 
standards get harder to maintain as a group gets larger, but I don't 
think we're at that point yet.) *If* there turns out to be consensus 
that we'd like to make that work, I suspect we can, especially if we can 
start out with some positive examples of such a discussion...
