;;; Commentary:

;; These macros may look very much like the ones in GNUS 4.1. They
;; are, in a way, but you should note that the indices they use have
;; been changed from the internal GNUS format to the NOV format. Makes
;; it possible to read headers from XOVER much faster.
;; The format of a header is now:
;; [number subject from date id references chars lines xref]
;; (That last entry is defined as "misc" in the NOV format, but Gnus
;; uses it for xrefs.)

;;; Code:
