Yes.  There's also default set by the publisher, and a user can subscribe
with a request for less than, but not more than, the default number of
messages.  The thinking is that a publisher can control whether newcomers
can see older messages.  Of course, you could come up with more flexible
rules (at the cost of more complexity), or even some form of negotiation,
but that's the extent of OpenQueue's approach.

Sorry, I don't know offhand why it fails in Linux/Netscape 4/75.
