This sounds complicated.  What's wrong with trusting the upstream-server
on the leafnode-users request?  The original problem was conflicting
settings re. moderation.  Let's say the user found both servers to be
reliable, but one of them harasses moderators.  He could set only this
server to "post_once = 1" in order to allow fetchnews to quit insisting
as soon as it sees the "OK" response rather than post until it sees the
articles MID.

Did I miss something obvious?
