I had a script to get news: first thing it did was "rm" everything in
interesting.groups, and then go thru my .newsrc and create one file
there for each newsgroup followed by ":".  Then, when I
fetch{,news}ed, they were fetched in order of my .newsrc.  This was in
1.9.2 and 1.9.7.  (I haven't run leafnode in a while.)
