I just started using newspost myself last week, and gnewspost this

I'd suggest taking a gander at gnewspost if you haven't already, it's a
good start, but still missing features like KILL to start.

People still have different takes on sfv and par, so personally, I'd still
post both regardless.  I'd think there'd also be some useful sidelines for
pan with more sfv support in the trigger section of the filters (ie,
checking for completed posts automatically).

Newspost does a real nice job with both, integrating seamlessly, but less
software can still be more, and I'm running pan all the time anyways :)
