Not with the currently stable 1.9.2. The current beta (1.10b2) contains
a rnews program that sorts news into the spool. From what I've seen in
my inbox, it has at least one bug: it crashes if a news article with the same 
message id is already found in the spool (Joerg Dietrich found this).
While the problem should be fairly straightforward to locate, I don't
currently have the possibility to do it (reading email from Glasgow is ok,
but debugging programs I'd rather not want to do). On the other hand, I
would like to hear of more people trying to use the 1.10b2 with UUCP, so
I won't discourage you too strongly from using it :-)
