If it is able to create them then how would the groups be managed.
Currently the groups that are pulled are done by our news readers
requesting that group. With UUCP there is no reader there it is just
delivery. The mechanism to be able to create UUCP batches would have to
be able to keep the groups active to keep leafnode fetching them.. Just
thinking about it makes me shiver. ;-) But then again I am no coder.
