[leafnode-list] local groups, use as archive


Is it possible to use the local groups feature of leafnode
as a archive, too?

The idea is to have your Reader save all interesting messages
in a queue directory. A cron job (rewriter) takes all files 
from the queue, prepends a "SAFE." in front of all newsgroups
_and_ all group reference urls inside the message and moves
them to a rnews_queue dir, where (cron job) rnews takes 
them and merges them into the local spool.

One advantage is the central archive, which is reachable 
no matter what Reader & OS your are using now.

What do you think about this concept ?

How will leafnode handle groups with more than 10 000 
messages ?

I'd like to have my own local namespace (prefix), that will 
never collide with the names for world wide groups.
Which Prefix should I choose for the "SAFE." string. Is 
there any sequence, that is not allowed,  guaranteed not 
appeare for official (world wide) groups, and is  
guaranteed to be usable by conforming news readers? 

How about "§save." or such ?
