I already do this, hence the "filling an HTML5 folder" part of my original 
message. I'd like to avoid this traffic on my mail server and the filesize 
in my local store whilst still participating in the Group.

Unfortunately I can't provide a patch for this. Asking for a feature I can't 
help with is poor manners on my part, sorry. But many others have expressed 
a desire to participate without so much e-mail traffic reaching them.

The main archive page [1] has links to the current unsubscribe+leave 
prodecures. The frontend for an unsubscribe-only feature could be added 
there if the systems team are kind enough to create one.
