This will cause fetchnews to reject all articles containing some
newsgroup in the alt.* hierarchy. There is no need to invoke
applyfilter for that.

applyfilter is a program which applies the contents of the filterfile
to a specific newsgroup which has already been downloaded. I.e. if you
don't download alt.* newsgroups, you don't have to invoke applyfilter.
applyfilter can take only one newsgroup as a parameter; it does not
(Thinking about it, since the format of the filterfile will change in
Leafnode 2.x - making it possible to make filterfile settings for
specific newsgroups only - it seems to make no sense to keep the
newsgroups parameter in applyfilter. Any comments?)
