That exact state of affairs is what led me to write Gnorb :(

Glad it's working! It does seem complicated, partly because it *is*
complicated, but partly because it's hard to explain the workflow in
words. I keep meaning to make a screencast of the tracking feature, but
I haven't gone and looked into packages for doing that. There's
something called "screenkey" that looks okay, but I'd like something
more Emacs aware, where you can filter out everything but commands from
a single package.

Anyway, please report bugs/feature requests. I've gotten a bit
distracted from Gnorb while working on EBDB, and now attacking bits of
Gnus, but it's really all the same project.
