dealing with getting php.net's news server set up on a new
machine, i think i've come to the conclusion that i should
write a new storage driver similar to tradspool, but with
hashing of the individual articles at the newsgroup level.
since we're not expiring anything from the server, tradspool doesn't really cut it (over a hundred thousand files in one directory just isn't cool, even if your filesystem is), and timehash doesn't cut it either, because i'd like to keep the newsgroups seperated (without having to set up a seperate timehash spool for each group).
what would be really sexy, though, would be to have inn just slave off the ezmlm archives, and avoid the duplication altogether. hmm.
