That was pretty much our intention, except that info-dylan isn't
restricted to language design and usage discussions.  It can also
include marketting discussions, programming environment discussions, 
discussions of particular implementations, etc.

I think that there will inevitably be a bit of wandering on both
lists.  That's the nature of the net, and it's not necessarily a
bad thing.

The dylan-builders list is open to anyone who is interested in practical
issues of implementing Dylan.

I hope this clarifies things.
