The Agent should ideally just "extend" the article storage, but
otherwise be invisible to the user.  I think that, at the very least,
the Agent storage for a particular group should be nuked if the
UIDVALIDITY of the IMAP mailbox changes, but I'm not sure that's
sufficient.  And it's not been easy to find out what the failure modes
actually are, because when people get problems in this area, they ask
for advice, and are told "rm -r", and things just work.  But it doesn't
help debugging any.  :-/

Ah, right.
