Thanks for your work on this.  I have a few minor comments in
a separate message.  I expect you'll have tests and maybe
an option for public-inbox-index eventually?

Not required; but it could be nice-to-have for portability and
ease-of-installation (probably for older distros and
non-GNU/Linux platforms).

Off the top of my head, there's also some places in NNTP.pm
where it needlessly uses Search.pm wrappers instead of using
Over.pm interfaces directly.
