Slrn used to use /etc/news/server. For a while now it's been using
/etc/nntpserver. Some other news readers still use /etc/nntp/server, so it's
not prudent to delete it, which slrn's postinst currently does (bug #12478).
So I'm about to change the slrn package so it does not remove
/etc/news/server, but instead makes it a symlink to /etc/nntpserver.
So in the long run, how do we ever get rid of /etc/news/server? We have to
leave it for backwards compatability, it seems. :-(
