I hate to hang my stupidity out for all to see, but I really do want
this to work!  It is so tantalizingly close, but I am just missing

I went to look in /etc/suck/Msgs, where suck used to stash downloaded
messages, and nothing was there.  Instead, they are now being being
stuck in /var/spool/news/Msgs.  suck's debug messages are going into
/var/spool/news/debug.suck.  Obviously, suck now thinks stuff needs to
go in /var/spool/news.

How do I get the articles from Msgs into cnews?  I gather that cnews
will use directories like /var/spool/news/linux/debian/user to hold
the articles, so how do I get lmove to put them there and then cnews
to recognize them?  I imagine it must be either a suck or lmove
switch, but which?
