I just joined this group. I work with Dr. Henry Rzepa at Imperial
College and have been running a Hyper-G server here for several months.

Moving subcollections around is easy as Peter pointed out. Hyperlinks
will always be maintained. Building completely different collection that
point to identical data is also straightfoward.

Hope this helps!
