Good suggestion, in fact I just recompiled to include the IMAP extensions
for just that purpose.  Unfortunately, I was unable to get a decent
understanding of how to use the IMAP extensions with NNTP, and since I have
implemented connection level NNTP sessions in a number of languages I
thought it may be easier.

If you are aware of a good example or tutorial for implementing NNTP with
IMAP I would appreciate a link.

P.S. Thanks for this wonderful tool.
