If anything in the documentation is unclear, please suggest
improvements or at least report it.

While it _is_ possible to mis-configure Gnus to lose mail, I think it
is quite hard to do it accidentally.  Those pitfalls (e.g. bogus split
or expiry setting) are documented with big fat warning, I think.
Additionally there are safety net mechanisms (see
e.g. `mail-source-delete-incoming' in (info "(gnus)Mail Source

[BTW, as you use the bleeding edge CVS Emacs+Gnus, you live more
dangerous as users of released version, of course.]
