Good idea.  Would have helped a lot when I worked no the last draft.  (Thou I
wouldn't have the time to do as big a rework as I did on the last rework.  So
don't look at me!!  `=[  )

One thought thou.  Its a good idea to organise things in a heriarch, but that
would seem to be dificult with parralell accounts.  Also parrallel backups
could be a problem.  Not big things, but thought I'ld mention them.

Oh, how would you transfer all those back newsletter.  Frakly the earlier ones
were better then our last years worth.
