I'm generally supportive of this, but it could backfire if it's 
not very active. Someone new to the language could get the 
impression that a few projects were started here and there, and 
now they're all dead. There would need to be regular project 
updates (even if they're small). The number of project-related 
posts in the announce forum is not encouraging. I suppose it's 
possible that announce is currently used only for major 
announcements. It wouldn't look good if that's all we had in a 
subforum dedicated to projects.
