I specifically do not serve user.* via NNTP, mainly because I figured
somebody might screw something up. But since I now have relatively good
access controls, I can probably remove this restriction.
I also thought it might be disconcerting for users to see their personal
folders (e.g. user.ken.*) as "newsgroups".
