[Python-Dev] Rework nntlib?

Like the email package, nntplib in py3k is broken (because of
various bytes/str mismatches; I suppose the lack of a test suite didn't
help when porting).

I would like to take the opportunity to improve the API a bit; no heavy
re-architecting, but simply a bunch of changes to make it higher-level.
Is it acceptable?

(and, yes, I would add a test suite)
