The term "cloud computing" clouds users minds; it discourages them
from asking crucial questions, such as "Whose computer is that, in
which country, and what exactly are they asking me to entrust to it?"
It fuzzes all the different uses of the network together.  So we urge
people to reject the term "cloud."  See

Thus, I was perturbed to see that a file in Gnus grants legitimacy
to the term "cloud" by using it.  The name ought to be changed.

I was going to suggest another name based on what the file does.
But I can't figure out what it does.  The only explanation is one
line at the top of the file, and it doesn't say much.  That is
bad maintenance.

Would someone like to add comments sufficient to understand
what the code does?  And please show them to me.
