It's perhaps worth noting that the newsreader in use at the Software
Technology Program of MCC in 1987-1990, written by Michael Begeman,
called `gnews', did this.  `gnews' was released into the public domain
several years ago, but I don't know where to get it from MCC these days.
 Looks like the code can be used in other things, as long as the credit
is preserved.  I've put a copy for ftp as  It'll be there for
a couple of weeks.
