Well, sorry to have to say, here is someone else opposed to a
recombination group. New groups are usually formed for one of two reasons:
1. There is no existing group suitable for the material.
2. An existing group is swamped with material on one particular topic
which is not of general interest to most readers.
Neither of these apply here. Go ahead and post to the .chromosomes
group!! It's hardly used as it is!
