I agree that strstr()ing for (Moderated) in the tagline is
anything but good, although (Moderated) is a requierement for
moderated groups.

I'm a bit confused here about first and second, but here are my
thoughts. Evaluating the y/n/m field is certainly the way to do
it. Sendmail, however, should only be invoked for local moderated
groups. The moderator addresses of "outside" moderated groups
cannot be determined automatically and require the manual
maintenance of the administrator (and following the appropriate 
announce groups of the various hierarchies to be notified of changes). 
This is certainly not desirable for the audience leafnode is aimed at. 
Instead, postings to non-local moderated groups should be sent to one 
(and only one) upstream server.
