You may find it easier to just drop the new post in ~news/spool/incoming
and make sure you're running rnews -U from cron to pick up posts dropped
off in there. Particularly if it's not critical that the post go through
You won't be able to connect to innd from inside a filter running in innd,
since innd is not multithreaded. I don't think there's any way that you
can interrupt innd to push another post through while processing a first
post, I'm afraid. (nnrpd would normally wait for the filter to complete
before passing along a post made through it.)
