Hi Bo,

Indeed.  I have just tested two successive removals and re-creations:

Which is a point to add to the advantages of ovsqlite!
I am really fond of that SQL command line tool to explore the database!

Reinstating a newsgroup removed by error is very simple with that.

We'll now need ovspool for article storage :-)
