No, that's why I started a new thread.

Ha ha, you once told me there were no poets here :) No,
there are some jokes in that book that are
"student"-ish in style, but that joke, if it is a joke,
isn't in line with those. Actually, my impression of
Gnus is that it *is* big, always when I search the help
it autocompletes thrice the much as other modules
do. But OK: there is no truth to that statement?
