I haven't been reading the complete history of this thread.

But can't you use fetchnews -x 10000 to get the last 10.000 articles?

Replace 10.000 with whatever number you want. Make it gradually larger in 
subsequent calls.

Articles you allready have won't be download again, so...

Or am I seriously missing the point of this subject?

When in doubt, use brute force.
