Newsgroups would be nice to have for scoring.

Currently the OVER command must be disabled for this to work in flnews.
Quoted from man page:
| o  nntp_no_over (Integer) Disable usage of overview (OVER command) for
|    NNTP protocol
|    Setting this to a nonzero value disables usage of overview and makes
|    the whole newsgroup list usable for scoring rules.
