#49: rnews should defer articles if INN is throttled

 Priority:  medium     |   Milestone:       
Component:  utilities  |     Version:       
 Severity:  normal     |    Keywords:       
 If innd is throttled, rnews currently fails the articles and moves them
 into the `bad` directory with an error like:

 Apr  7 22:32:29 genba rnews: unknown_reply after article 400 loadav
 [innwatch:load] 1977 gt 1500

 rnews really should just defer the articles if INN is throttled, but right
 now it doesn't have a great way to do that.  I wonder if rnews should try
 to query the local control socket to get INN's status before trying to
 post messages, at least in -U mode.
