To clarify: almost all emacs and gnus configuration files are
emacs-lisp /programs/, and gnus is AFAIK completely written in emacs
lisp itself. But as I indicated in my previous post, you only need a fairly
minimal knowledge of (emacs) lisp to configure the simpler options.

Plus you can use the "Customize" system for a lot of them.
