[wp-hackers] Where Can I Ask These Questions?

+1 for the "expert" thread with an RSS feed in the forums.  

Even though I normally lurk here as a plugin author watching for issues that
might affect my plugin, I'd subscribe to the expert RSS feed and be happy to
answer questions on the few areas that I feel qualified to answer (how to
plugin to the RTE options for a TinyMCE plugin, how to create a plugin that
will work with both the RTE and the text editor, etc.)

As it is now, I don't visit the WP forums because I find them too

Here's something I'm throwing out there.  What about if the mods in  
the WP.org support forums were given a way of marking a thread as  
"expert" ?  As needing the advice of an expert.  If it's something  
they've never seen, and something that Google and the Codex know  
nothing about, they could tag it as needing an expert opinion.   
People like me could subscribe to that tag in their RSS reader.  As  
long as it was only a few questions a week and as long as it  
adequately filtered lazy or repeat questions, I'd be happy to chime  
in with answers when I have them.  The problem with the forums the  
signal to noise ratio is too low for people with expert knowledge.
