[leafnode-list] Using Authentication to Limit Subscription to Local Groups

I think I already know the answer to this but is there a way to use the "INTERNAL" authentication method to limit which local newsgroups a user can subscribe to? I've got leafnode-2 installed successfully and have created several a local newsgroup and users in the /etc/leafnode/users file. As far as I can tell though, this authentication allows the users to view all the newsgroups on the server. I'd like to be able to create several local newsgroups on the same server, to which I limit those who can subscribe to each local newsgroup by giving them a user account which will only allow them to subscribe to the newsgroup I specify as allowed for that user account.

I don't want to have to go to a more complex NNTP server if I don't have to, as leafnode fulfills much of what I need, but I do need something that provides this functionality. Ideas?
