    Good ideas, Peter. I think the discussion tonight will point to the kind
    thing we really need -- or at least a first step in that direction.

    As for the OneList archives being "threaded", maybe I've gone to the
    place. All I've seen there is a list that forces you to choose a list
    that contains
    messages for a range of dates -- a pretty useless arrangment for
    or browsing.
