I just hope that these articles do not contain headers like Xref:,
NNTP-Posting-Host: or Injection-Info: because they will be rejected
by nnrpd with the new behaviour of IHAVE.
The news administrator will have to handle them with innd, and not nnrpd
(which means that MODE READER must not be sent by that software).
