This may or may not be a good idea, I'm just throwing it out for discussion:

One way to defend ourselves from piling feature upon feature here could
be to, at least for now, limit our scope to minimise novelty: if there's
an existing Scheme Discourse group we can link to it, and if not,
somebody can try creating one and we'll link to it, and if it seems
popular and good we can *then* move it to
