nnrpd supports SSL now. Has since 2.3, if I recall. So if you *really*
need secure feeding, you can fake it with suck/rpost.
This is the first time anyone's mentioned wanting news transport over SSL
that I can recall, so I haven't even thought about it. Initial guess is
that it's likely to be pretty hard to do.
