Okay, the above is basically up and working, modulo bugs. In an OCD fit
I had to rename a couple of functions, I'm going to coder hell, I know
it. gnorb-gnus-outgoing-make-todo is now gnorb-gnus-outgoing-do-todo,
and gnorb-gnus-message-trigger-todo is now gnorb-gnus-incoming-do-todo.

The readme at https://github.com/girzel/gnorb has a general description
of how one might use this for email tracking.
