Here's an example of another way in which netnews is deployed
using multicast. Could this be used for 'pushing' channels of
moderated content?


attached mail follows:

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

	Title		: A Protocol for the Transmission of 
                          Net News Articles over IP multicast

Mcntp (Multicast News Transfer Protocol) provides a way to use the IP
   multicast infrastructure to transmit NetNews articles between news
   servers. Doing so will reduce the bandwidth that is actually needed
   for transmission of articles which is mostly done via NNTP. This does
   not affect how news reading clients communicate with servers.

Internet-Drafts are available by anonymous FTP.  Login wih the username
"anonymous" and a password of your e-mail address.  After logging in,
type "cd internet-drafts" and then
	"get draft-rfced-exp-rupp-03.txt".
A URL for the Internet-Draft is:

Internet-Drafts are also available by mail.

Send a message to:	mailserv@ds.internic.net.  In the body type:
	"FILE /internet-drafts/draft-rfced-exp-rupp-03.txt".
NOTE:	The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
