Me, I see VERP as an afterthought. I'm more interested in making things 
easier for the end user, which means things like what I posted earlier 
this morning (to line changes, encoded URLs). you can't do that every 
Nth post, it has to be in every message. And once you do that, you might 
as well do VERP, since it's now free.

but if you don't want to do the customization for end-users, then yes, 
intermittent VERP is fine.

Yes, yes, I've finally finished my home page. Lucky you.
