I am interested in the requirement here. Do you really go to the last
article in a thread? If so, a natural "first step" in reading a thread?
Would you really order a thread so latest article is first? It strikes
me as very unusual behaviour :-; Still, the wonderful Gnus can be
moulded to all tastes.
