If the previous discussion leader (or anyone else that wants to take
over the job) can get this group moving again, we can continue it in
operation.  Currently there seems to be little point to keeping it.
If people want to post replies, they should copy the newsgroup.  Here
are the addresses once again.  The fate of this group is in the hands
of its users.
