Note that RFC is informational and there is a more common draft expiring
this October.

Quoting that RFC:

   2.4 XGTITLE

   XGTITLE [wildmat]

   The XGTITLE command is used to retrieve news group descriptions for
   specific news groups.


   Please note that this command and the LIST NEWSGROUP command provide
   the same functionality with different response codes.

   Since this command provides the same functionality as LIST NEWSGROUP
   it is suggested that this extension be deprecated and no longer be
   used in newsreading clients.

What newsreaders rely on XGTITLE rather than LIST NEWSGROUP?
