tempfile.mkdtemp(), which is of course trivial to replace by
something else or do a version check.

There is a problem that leads to the loss of email which I
attribute to leafnode being overly restrictive:

441 Invalid header "Message-ID:
<1081904429.3548.6850.camel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>", article not

441 Invalid header "Message-ID:
<1081922545.30226.102.camel@bach>", article not posted

and a few others. While these are certainly not valid Message-ID:
headers because the fqdn is not a fqdn, accepting these messages
causes no harm. The only ones who can be affected by this
misconfiguration are the people with the same misconfiguration. I
see no technical reason not to accept these articles (and authors
of other NNTP servers apparently think the same).
