Recently I noted that the library doesn't have a good News support. Especially 
presenting message and newsgroup lists to the user isn't handled very well. 
So... I have added some of the lacking features to my copy of the library. 
These include:

- presenting message reference threads as nested lists
- hierarchical presentation of newsgroups within "* sets" (e.g. soc.* includes
soc.culture.*, which in turn includes soc.culture.hongkong)
- simple memory newsgroup list cache, capable of handling one host at a time
- improved HTParseTime function, to deal with variety of date formats used in message lists
- corrected many errors and bugs in HTNDir.c and HTNewsLs.c

Is anyone interested in this?
