It is true that nnrpd only lacks streaming. Yet, without innd, nnrpd
does not do many things -- save reading of course. nnrpd cannot inject
articles; it just "pushes" articles to innd, which then do all the work.

Something tricky is to properly count :bytes (for OVER and HDR
responses). Another caveat is not to forget to dot-stuff LIST MOTD,
LIST ACTIVE.TIMES, LIST NEWSGROUPS, LIST DISTRIBUTIONS, HELP, etc.
responses in case the server reads a file written by a user.
