Hi Bob,

I’m also a Gnus users.  Two things to keep in mind though:

  1. Gnus becomes quite slow when handling dozens of thousands of
     messages;

  2. It blocks Emacs entirely while processing them.


I hope something could be done about it[1].  Perhaps if Gnus get
rewritten to take advantage of the new Lisp threads functionality.  Does
someone know if that is doable?


Footnotes: 

[1] Running multiple Emacs instances is not an option.
