Subject: a note about NNTP + IMAP in -watch

There's already lots of changes that are ready and working
well for 1.6.

But I'm not too happy about the usability of NNTP and IMAP
support w.r.t. many inboxes.  Configuring many groups or
mailboxes to mirror is a PITA, and maybe there should be
glob/wildcard support and there's still a lot of other stuff to
be done w.r.t scalability which won't be user-visible.

Thus, I'm inclined to leave those features undocumented,
for now, and get some indexing changes ready for 1.6 ASAP,
since it's already been over 2 months since 1.5...
