Not able to use leafnode and trn?

Hi all!

I'm a little bit puzzled.
I am trying to set up my system so I can read USENET news offline.
Having failed to get slrn and slrnpull to work I've decided to
try leafnode with trn instead. However it seems that using trn means
I can't use leafnode, despite leafnode suggesting it!

As shown below:

Package: trn
Version: 3.6-9.3
Priority: optional
Section: news
Maintainer: Jonathan K. Rabone <jkr@debian.org>
Depends: libc6, ncurses3.4, inews
Recommends: mail-transport-agent
Suggests: ispell
Provides: news-reader
Architecture: i386
Filename: dists/frozen/main/binary-i386/news/trn_3.6-9.3.deb
Size: 187250
MD5sum: 8d29b31affb18bc0c73e6a63968a9b61

trn depends on inews, so

Package: inews
Version: 2.1-6
Priority: extra
Section: news
Maintainer: Roman Hodek <Roman.Hodek@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>
Depends: cnews, perl
Conflicts: inewsinn
Architecture: all
Filename: dists/frozen/main/binary-i386/news/inews_2.1-6.deb
Size: 11414
MD5sum: d501cab6492fb25e53fd2bb64ab5fa2d

inews depends on cnews, so

Package: cnews
Version: cr.g7-12
Priority: extra
Section: news
Maintainer: Roman Hodek <Roman.Hodek@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>
Depends: libc6, cron
Recommends: inews, mail-transport-agent
Suggests: ncompress, news-reader, nntp
Conflicts: inn, inewsinn, news-transport-system
Provides: news-transport-system
Architecture: i386
Filename: dists/frozen/main/binary-i386/news/cnews_cr.g7-12.deb
Size: 413242
MD5sum: aeeb70c05311c6aa83934ac4e4853ece

but cnews conflicts with news-transport-system...

Package: leafnode
Version: 1.4-10
Priority: extra
Section: news
Maintainer: Joey Hess <joeyh@master.debian.org>
Depends: netbase, libc6
Suggests: trn | news-reader
Conflicts: news-transport-system, newsx
Provides: news-transport-system
Architecture: i386
Filename: dists/frozen/main/binary-i386/news/leafnode_1.4-10.deb
Size: 74230
MD5sum: bcf3b2c63a8b433f4b986bfd4505e0a1

...and therefore leafnode! So how do I do this?
