Thanks for the suggestion - before compiling it (I've got something else in
the middle of a compile at the moment!), I've looked at readme.html. This
seems to indicate that moderators can only be set for *local* groups - is
that not the case?
If not (ie if explicitly setting a moderators address for an external group
will work), then this sounds exactly what I need! Not the first time I've
asked a Linux programmer about a feature only to find someone else has
already made it work :-)
