  Is this just those @large members in France or for the whole EU?
If the former, than fine, if the latter, than there are some gross
and incorrect conclusions.  Many of our European members are also
@large members as well.  And they have been hammering me in this
regard for some time.  So as their elected spokesman, I think it is
past time to get this out to all of the rest of you.

  "Coordinating without interfering with the coordination?"  Isn't this
a bit of and oxymoron here Jefsey?

  Not really Jefsey.  It seems to be mostly a creation of confusion.
But you French are that way.  Se la vi, I suppose...  :(
