Another possibility would be to use control.ctl for such variables
(in an expire.ctl way for instance):


Note that it could also be useful for encodings since, as we discussed
long ago (but I only proposed "encoding:" at that time), it would be
great to have a good encoding for the newsgroups file.
It would be possible to have something like:

# If there is only a colon, it sets the encoding wanted for the newsgroups file.

# If there are two colons, it sets the encoding of incoming control messages.

(cp1252 works better than iso-8859-1 for all hierarchies, since it is an extension.)
