[leafnode-list] Re: Welcome to leafnode-list@wpxx02.toxi.uni-wuerzburg.de

I've just installed leafnode-2.0b8_ma9, only to find that my local
news server is running nntpcache 2.3.3. 

leafnode refuses to play with it, on the grounds of its having y2k

Am I looking for trouble by simply editing nntputil.c and
commenting out the nntpdisconnect and "return 0" lines:

    if (line && strstr(line, "NNTPcache server V2.3")) {
	/* NNTPcache 2.3.3 is still in widespread use, but it
	   has Y2k bugs which have only been fixed in a beta
	   version as of 2001-12-24. This 2.3 version is
	   unsuitable for any use since 2000-01-01. */
	       "%s: Server greeting \"%s\" hints to NNTPcache v2.3.x. "
	       "This server has severe Y2k bugs which make it "
	       "unsuitable for use with leafnode. "
	       "Ask the news server administrator to update.",
	       upstream->name, line);
                return 0;

It seems to work, but am I heading for a fall?
