It appears that the format of nnrpd's reply to an article command
depends on whether the article was requested by article number or
message-id. This seems wrong, and infact the latter format is not
what the RFC (as out of date as it is) says it should be.

Unfortunately, Netscape seems to have incorporated parsing for the
wrong format into their news reader and fixing INN breaks Netscape
news readers.. I'm not sure whether there is a clear way to win in
this situation.
