I don't object to having no membership fee.

Right - this is the key point to avoid the possibility of confusion or
competition I was worried about. To clarify my thinking:

- If there is a local user group, you must join that, which
automatically gets you membership in PG-EU.

- If there is no local group, you may join PG-EU directly.

So, if you live in France, you can *only* join PostgreSQLFr, but in
doing so, you also become a member of PG-EU.

If you live in Portugal, you have no local group, therefore join PG-EU directly.

I would then expect that PG-EU would help and encourage direct members
to form their own regional groups in the long term.
