Well looking at the output from fetchnews -vv, all the servers (I have 4
news servers) give me lines such as:

comp.os.linux.security: considering 9 articles 48492 - 48500, using XOVER

I need to check if there are still some of these wildly crossposted
articles about, is there an easy way of doing this? or will I need to
compose some fancy recursive grep..
