Well, if using "N" stops both regenerative _and_ compression braking, I
don't see how it would accomplish that anyway.

The hydraulic part works just fine regardless of the gear. As for
'compression braking' or engine braking, it is of limited use until "B"
is engaged.

"Mike Rosenberg" asked:

I had misinterpreted Bill's post on 5/20:

I thought this discussion was about occasionally removing the rust by using
the mechanical braking instead of regen.  I guess his second sentence didn't
register.....  It is now clear to me that Bill did NOT want to stop
regenerative braking.  Sorry.

You're claiming that the mechanical brakes are disabled in "N"?  
Nonsense.

I believe he's claiming that the car will just stop without needing to
use the brakes.  I can see that possibly working under the right
circumstances, but I sure wouldn't want to rely on it and in any event
I'd have to wonder what the point is.  Okay, you'd put off the need for
a brake job for a while longer than normal, but it would come at the
expense of fuel economy.
