hoho!  this time i was faster than matthias and had 20070108a up and
ready before it was announced!  as is customary with matthias software,
it simply works after the "./configure && gmake all install clean"

however i was unable to locate information about this special problem.
with snapshot 20061204a i had the following configuration lines:

  server = news.mediascape.de
  only_groups_pcre = ^(?!gmane\.)

  server = news.gmane.org
  only_groups_pcre = ^gmane\.

which worked flawlessly. i inserted the PCRE regular expressions to
avoid the annoying and bandwith-wasting messages about newsgroups not
present at particular newsservers, ie.  "411 No such group sci.crypt".
isn't "only_groups_pcre = ^(?!gmane\.)" what was meant with "inverted
newsgroup matches"?
