Blah, I just use a shell script that crafts all the headers
and then calls (a non-trn) "inews -h" for my FAQ posting and 
binaries posting...  :)  There are various 'inews'es supporting authinfo out
there, using other files than .nntpauth (or else letting you specify
 another filename in their source code) so you won't bump into the 
trn + .nntpauth quirk when you use those...
