I don't think I understand.  MODE CANCEL is still an interface to innd.
Why does it help any to have that part of innd doing expensive work rather
than the article processing part?

Or do you mean offloading that support as well, into an overchan-like
daemon that just processes cancels?  Hm.  I think all of our overview
methods lock against multiple writers, so that might work.

    Please send questions to the list rather than mailing me directly.
     <http://www.eyrie.org/~eagle/faqs/questions.html> explains why.
