I finally found some time to figure out why the Xref changes weren't having
the desired effect for me; the result is the following two changes.

As always, these patches are likely to reveal that I really haven't done
any perl in decades and that I'm still kind of groping my way around the
public-inbox source.  Hopefully they aren't too bad...

RFC 5536 sec 3.2.14 says that the server-name in an Xref line is "which
news server generated the header field"; indeed, that is necessary for
newsreaders like gnus to handle references properly.  So pick up the server
name from the config if available, from the host name otherwise, and use it
rather than the domain name of the list server.

Putting the Xref field into xover lines allows newsreaders to mark
cross-posted messages read when catching up a group.  That, in turn,
massively improves the life of crazy people who try to follow dozens of
kernel lists, where emails are often heavily cross-posted.

Thanks.  Oops, I didn't realize the server-name was supposed to be there :x.
But it looks like some test cases need to be adjusted for these.
(see below)

I haven't tested, but I think this needs to account for
multi-value nntpserver in the config (picking the first value is
fine, I suppose)

For example, I use the following config on news.public-inbox.org
because it's also available as a Tor hidden service:

	[publicinbox]
		nntpserver = news.public-inbox.org
		nntpserver = ou63pmih66umazou.onion


And here are test failures from t/nntp.t and t/nntpd.t: ("grep -v ^ok")

Hey, man, the feature works for me...what more do you want?!? :)

It didn't occur to me to run the tests, of course.  I'll fix that up and
repost, but it may be a little before I get back to it; this allegedly
real-life thing is being a little intense at the moment...

Thanks,

jon
