Turbo Lag and Recycling - new concept?

>From the Toronto Star - talking about the new 150HP 1.8T Beetle
Maybe Audi could get in on this game!

"It's a rare turbo that can rid itself of lag, but the 1.8T comes close.
Lag is the momentary delay between when you ask for power and
when you actually get it, as the turbine reroutes unburned exhaust 
gases back into the firing chambers."
