Maybe. If you're courageous, you may want to try leafnode-2, which
updates XOVER earlier (i. e. while articles are fetched), rather than in
a separate pass as leafnode-1 does.
Individual leafnode-2 versions are stable, but I don't promise that
every detail remains compatible between snapshots, hence "alpha".
