I will wait for about a week before doing anything, except collecting
feedback. I did however prepare a diff for quirks. Newsboat has
a mechanism in place that prompts you whether it should port your
newsbeuter configuration upon the first run. This should ensure a smooth
update.

The binaries however have different names. I'm not sure if this warrants
a mentioning on current.html. I do not thinks so, other opinions?
