??? There's  been major discussion about this on both lists, and
everybody thinks it's a wonderful idea.  Not a single objection.
And for the life of me, I cannot imagine why there would be.  Recipes
developed by members of the Stockholm region support group for families
with kidney disease are perfectly edible by Värmland families in
the same position, and vice versa.  Why on earth shouldn't they be
able to combine their lists if they want to?
