incoming.conf vs readers.conf

Hello everyone,

I found experimentally that in a distributed system when you want to have
your reader connect to the feeder to forward user postings, you should
specify the reader in the feeder's incoming.conf.  On the other hand, when
you want your reader to spool the articles first and then use rnews to
send them over to the feeder, you need to add the reader to the feeder's

Is this supposed to be this way, and if yes, then why?  Or is it just
something weird about my own setup?
