Hi Friedrich,

sorry for that in advance - this mailing list behaves a bit different.
It is configured that you don't need to subscribe, so it is better to CC
all participants of a discussion. (Was done to lower the hurdles to get
in touch here occasionally.)

Well, so true - there are styles that don't allow hierarchical
organization. Thus, all the settings are (presumably) hard-coded.

Now I'm curious what Olivier will tell us about the user case - I'll
think a bit about this issue.
