Right, so you missed the point that the magazine needs to be easy/cheap
to print everywhere, or it doesn't get distributed at all.

... plus shipping. As opposed to getting 200 copies made for *free*,
which I can do if it's US Letter. If we have to pay $7 each for copies
of the magazine, we're going to be pretty reluctant to give them out.
Which is the exact opposite of what I thought you wanted.
I'm not asking you to reformat the magazine as US Letter. I'm asking
you to allow others to do so, without pitching a fit that they're
messing up your magazine. And the reason I asked for a volunteer to
reformat is that my desire is to have a US Letter layout which looks as
good as the current A4 layout, rather than something which has huge
awkward margins and text shrunk 10%.
