I think that with the old GG anything posted via google would go out to 
usenet, then the mailing list would pick it up, which is exactly as we 
would want it. However, with the new google group changes this week, I 
don't know if this is usenet anymore, and their ability to just flip 
things like this at their discretion is what worries me the most... 
Perhaps someone more GG-aware could chime in?
