[200q20v] oil mist filter/trap?

Ok guys, a while back when we were all talking about oil vapor 
getting out via the crankcase breather hose, -someone- found a widget 
that was basically designed to do exactly what's needed.  I remember 
looking at a web page with the info, but I don't remember the issue 
going any further.  I've since lost all my email going back quite a 
ways; quick archive search turned up nada.

Anyone remember the post I'm talking about, or the device?  Is the 
person who did the research still around?  I'd like to take another 
look and maybe set about installing the little widget.  Should be 
easy enough, I think there's room behind the engine.  Draining it 
would be a little tricky, but certainly not impossible.

Looked and looked around online, and I haven't been able to find 
anything that's more than a glorified container with fittings 
attached; no sign of this mystery device I clearly remember a lister 
uncovering.  We need something that will actually capture the oil 
mist/vapor, not a gravity trap.

I did come across a lot of discussion on various sites about how most 
stock PCV systems don't do much good in turbo cars, at least ones 
that vent to the intake system post-turbo.  I'm pretty sure I 
remember the Audi crankcase system vents pre-turbo, so there 
shouldn't be a problem, right?
