Absolutely agreed. Although, the mechanics of any kwlug 'blessing' 
escapes me at the moment.

Not that it's immediately needed, as there's nothing on the table. 
Well, except for John's newsletter - which I, for one, don't think I'd 
have any objection to kwlug blessing it. Perhaps merely phrasing it as 
a kwlug member contributed publication is appropriate. (If that's 
ultimate accurate / how it comes about.)
