But this is probably outweighed by having to use IHAVE... Diablo
supports a non-standard compression protocol using "MODE COMPRESS",
which I imagine is more likely to be supported by a transit server ;-)

Compared to INN's IHAVE, I don't know. But it's definitely much slower
than streaming. (Perhaps someone should add streaming to nnrpd, and do
away with innd entirely ;-)

No, rather someone (on ietf-nntp, I think) who was unclear about what
exactly should be escaped. Which given the ad-hoc nature of NNTP, means
there could be a server out there that gets it wrong. However I've
never actually seen that in practice.
