Hmmm, did this, and trn internally shows it's using this trnrc file, but
my From: line is not changed.

I put in only one line, since I didn't have a .trn/trnrc file, and this
is what's in it according to trn itself through the help menu:

FROM = " (Patrick Vervoorn)"

vervoorn@cddb:~$ trn -V

Trn version: 4.0-test76 (Apr 2, 2001).
Configured for NNTP (plus individual local access).
