[REBOL] Problem with newsgroup message count Re:

The built-in nntp protocol (nntp://) appears to always return 1000000 as the length of the group. The external news:// protocol ('do %nntp.r) has a count command which looks like it correctly obtains article counters from the news server. However, I can't figure out the proper way to issue the count command via news:// ... I'm copying this to Jeff directly (as the all-knowing master of the news:// protocol) to see if he can explain it.
