	I understand.  That's why I say that it's related, as opposed to 
just quoting the FAQ entry for you and letting you read the answer 
for yourself.

	To the degree you want?  No.  I've known plenty of multi-million 
dollar businesses that have been built on the kind of tool you're 
looking for, and every one of them has found it necessary to create 
their own.

	The mail-merge problem is so different from the running of a 
mailing list that you simply cannot take existing tools and abuse 
them to work the way you want.
