Sorry, no help here, just more idle thought...

Another thing along these lines would be a caching NNTP server. It would
forward requests for articles, and then keep a copy so that subsequent
requests could be satisfied faster and more efficiently. Such a thing
would automatically only use disk space for newsgroups that are actually
read, and it would adjust automatically.

I think if anybody made this it could be quite popular...
