I wasn't sure about OS X, so I left that one out.

On (a) you got me. (b) is handled by the newsreader (reading the
placeholder) and leafnode (unsubscribing unused groups). Though I do
realize in some situations it would be nice to immediately subscribe or
undsubscribe a group.
I'm also looking at it from the point of view of Leafnode 1. I don't know
what functions a GUI might provide for Leafnode 2. Taking a look at the
screenshot for Keafnode, it doesn't seem to do any of the above, but I
haven't tested it.
