it is ugly when viewed from the standpoint of the USENET as a whole.
what i want to achieve is just a local copy of everything going out,
where this local copy would never hit the 'net.  i'd consider this
"local policy" with no bearing on anybody offsite.  plus:  people would
know that articles in local.archive may or may not have appeared some
place else, but they'd know these articles were sent off.  i would not
even _want_ superseeding to work.  "people", this is just me in this

come on, you have predicates like "is_localgroup(group_name)", and
you're learned and far from simple, this can't be a technical problem.
