 I use tin to read news, and it saves news in the format that Hypermail uses.
 It's probably not too hard to automate this. I see this in the tin man page:
  "tin allows new/unread news articles to be mailed (``-M'' and ``-N'' option) or saved (``-S'' option) in batch mode for later reading."

 There are probably a number of other programs which would do something similar.

 I don't think nntp handling should be integrated into the hypermail binary, but there should probably be a more detailed explanation in the docs of a way to configure a system to send news to hypermail.
