Hmm, when I think about it - it would be better if those mail programs like
RMAIL and Gnus could tells us alone if there is any new mail. Syntax of
Gnus' mail-sources variable is pretty easy, but Gnus also support IMAP
etc. and we should not duplicate code in display-time. What do you think?

The same applies to pop3.el from Gnus.
