Hi list,

I'm trying to keep up with the conversation but my english is not that great. 
I won't write much mostly  because I can't but also because I want your 
opinion on something I wrote a few weeks ago, about "virtual hierarchical 
groups". Basically it won't require any change in the current way that things 
are done, is kind of simple and some features can be added on top of it. 

The recipe I was thinking about was named (by me) "VTREE" and I wrote some 
thoughts about it , here:


I would apreciate any comment sent directly to me (maybe because it is an OT) 
or to  the list.
