well, for me leafnode is no faster than thunderbird directly to an upstream newsserver.

I just wanted to clarify about expectations & functionality.

leafnode can be put to good use, but you should know that you need it beforehand.

use the debian package and debconf it for fast results. 
getting fetchmail to work may be bit of a struggle. keep up the good news!
