Cornelius is reluctant to change the functionality. I suggested multiple
server queues and getting rid of delposted(), but I feel I'm not getting
this past Cornelius, it would be an -ma series feature.

I feel it should not be too hard to issue HEAD, but this may well be
postponed until after 2.0 IMHO.

Hum. Should the poster be mailed a copy of the article that's been sent
to the moderators if the Path is empty (i. e. on initial submission)?
OTOH, mailing is done by the server the article is posted on, so we
don't have headers, we can just say "your article (copy attached) has
been posted to a moderated newsgroup, it will take some hours for it to
show up".
