Why not do it as an annual or a double sized issue and divide the issue
into four parts?  I've found breaking issues into parts to be a good
compromise between my desire to keep issues short and the tendency for
posts on RACC to become longer and longer with shorter posts as a
result appearing increasingly anemic.  Telling the same story four
times would also mean going three issues with nothing new happening. :)
