| Mu own idea was to have something like:
| 	comp.os.bsd.announce
| 	comp.os.bsd.misc
| 	comp.os.bsd.freebsd
| 	comp.os.bsd.netbsd
| 	comp.os.bsd.386bsd
| 	comp.os.bsd.bsdi
| This would be a reasonable compromise between a split for each variant and
| a common group for discussion that isn't specific to each box (like, how do
| you configure gated, or "I want to use sendmail on a UUCP-only site" or other
| general questions).

This approaches tolerability, tho' I'd be happier if we tossed in some
additional generic groups (such as a .help, .tech, ...) to balance out the
faction specific groups.
