	lei ls-mail-source -l nntp://

I just made "-l" show pretty JSON output in the terminal
to help find NNTP article ranges.

I was wrong about the URI package not supporting ranges,
it does; and forgot lei even seemed to have (untested)
support for it.  It should be working, now, just pushed out
commit 67fe4d8d90ac77419c8fc41457c849aa7d366a9d
("net_reader: fix single NNTP article fetch, test ranges")

Neither Net::NNTP nor Mail::IMAPClient support pipelining
out-of-the-box, though; so network latency is still a problem.

I'm still not sure about doing an interactive UI (my brain
tends to struggle with that stuff :x); but I think extending
tab-completion for epochs and NNTP article ranges would be
good (I'm not particularly good with tab-completion, either :x)
