Hi Clemens,

I don't think this is a viable option. We'd have to parse each and every  
article's Path: header when downloading, then this test would break on  
low-traffic groups, the test would break if the upstream's DNS server name  
doesn't match what gets put in Path:, and if one server has the moderator  
flag wrong, the moderator will get dupes. Sorry.
