This is true, however, there exists some hidden code in fetchnews.c
which is not too difficult to enable (however, you need some working
knowledge of C to do it). Mainly, you must write a few lines of code
to main() to enable the variable headerbody and use the already
existing function testheaderbody() to find out whether the two options
-H and -B are used together (or if -H and -B are used without
delaybody being specified in the config file).

A complete implementation exists already in the 2.0a versions.
