The Gnutella protocol has an extension called "ultra peer mode" or
something like that. If your "servent" connects to an "ultra peer", it
may switch to "leaf node" mode which doesn't relay Gnutella queries,
responses and other information, but that just talks to its ultra peers.

That's got nothing with the Leafnode Usenet/NNTP software.

I don't think LimeWire is aware of that. You shouldn't need to modify it
for LimeWire (which I've looked at and discarded, it looks plain ugly,
is slow, wastes memory and the translations are *G*R*O*W*S*E*. You also
don't get to see what it does and it displays ugly ads. Try gtk-gnutella
from SourceForge if you need something that does without Java Runtime
