The patch:
1) Increases _MAXLINE to 4096.
2) Reverts issue 16040 and that is not correct, please ignore that part.

The changes made in issue 16040 limit the amount of data read by readline() and does not close the nntp session when the server sends a message whose size is greater than this limit. In that case, should not nntplib close the session as the session has become unusable as shown by the test_nntplib results in test_nntplib.log?
