We've been speculating about doing this too, for use with dreaderd
(Diablo) reader clients.
Roughly, here's what i found out:
* Session MUST be started by sending "mode headfeed<CR><LF>"
* Header MUST contain bytecount of article (Bytes: n)
* Header is terminated by one blank line (<CR><LF><CR><LF>)
* Control messages are transferred WITH their body.
I haven't gotten round to implementing thew thing yet...
