Okay, I've just created the one now, to try things out, and will be
watching inndf -o to see how it runs..just a regular:

makehistory -O -I -T /var/spool/news/tmp

to get things back up and running?

The part that I'm still confused about...the writes to the buffer are
sequential, right?  Now, I fill the buffer, and it starts from the
beginning again...but, the beginning of the buffer is populated by
articles in time-hash, whose expire time is several months, vs
weeks...will those records get overwritten, or does it just 'fill in the
spaces' left by expireover marking dead articles?
