Subject: [CR]ultra-6 freewheels and that which cannot be mentioned

I was talking with Mike Kone at the Cirque (a veritable fount of wisdom, I have to say, hats off to ya, Mike), and he mentioned that it is possible to put a Maeda ultra-6 freewheel on a hub spaced for a 120mm rear-triangle, and use the current Campagnolo-parts-that-can't-be-mentioned with it.

Is this the case, or am I mis-remembering? I'll talk with Mike off-list, but I also thought this an interesting issue--getting some modern parts-that-may-not-be-mentioned on a vintage frame without re-spacing..and I thought others here might be interested in it, or have other comments.

Please e-mail me privately, as well as to the list...since I don't see every post.. and note that I'm not trying to make this about new components. I'm trying to understand how to put new wine in an old bottle...
