Anyone want NNTPcheckarticle?

lib/checkart.c provides the sole function NNTPcheckarticle, which does
something that appears to be completely bogus (namely ensure that every
line of an article *body* is under NNTP_STRLEN -- the NNTP protocol should
only care about commands, not article bodies).  This function isn't called
anywhere in INN, but is historically part of the libinn interface.

I plan on removing it, on the grounds that anything outside of INN that
was calling it shouldn't have been anyway.  Any objections?
