These sound like good changes Ken, I look forward to testing them. Note 
that there will always be problems with doing this sort of thing, you 
can't cover all the possibilities :-)

I just had a thought (no I'm not asking you do to more work, just 
wondering): if a newsgroup message comes in (via fetchnews) that was 
crossposted to two groups, one of which is _not_ mirrored into a local 
IMAP folder, and then a user replies to the IMAP folder copy of that 
message, will the additional newsgroup followup be "lost"? No big deal 
if it is, just might be worth documenting.
