Hi Joe

taking off on a tangent from this comment ...

interesting suggestion ...
Cornell Univ. is about to deploy a cookie based Kerberos proxy system
for Cornell www sites that care about limiting access.  The motivation
is that Kerberos/sidecar does not work behind NATs.  If NNTP had cookie
technology, then we could potentially tie it in to this system.  As it
stands now, while we have hacked sidecar support in to an old nnrpd
we have to tell people that it does not work from behind a NAT.
