	heh, don't forget to mention the "crying" on the nay 
	side, too, dan.  anyway, i can see the danger, as an
	urq driver, especially one that'll have a 5kq engine
	in it in about 4 weeks.  i'd subscribe to both, most
	likely.  i delete a lot of messages when i gt too busy
	anyway.  this list is an oddity in that it focuses on 
	a feature across audi's whole line of cars - and we're
	not even specific to that (hi huw! :) all the time, 
	which i also find just great.

]Still, segmenting can be done, if we figure out where to draw broad circles.
]"Old" cars vs "new"?

	could be.  in the end, someone can just form a list and
	look for interested people.  i'll stay on the q list
	for sure, and probably join other relavent lists.
