Basically, you have to run an archive program of some kind out of
newsfeeds, since pulling the articles out of CNFS is more of a pain than
doing that.  There's an archive program that comes with INN that may be
suitable, or it's not too difficult to write one's own (just feed it
article tokens, use sm to retrieve them, and append the articles to an
archive file separated by some convenient separator).
