Thanks for those.  I've had another look, and now I see them in the
Gnus 5.10 Reference Card.  I don't know why I hadn't spotted 'B DEL'.
'M-&' is definitely going to be a useful one.

A further query: according to the Reference Card, 'E' or 'M e' works
with "scope".  But if I type (say) '5 E' or 'M-5 M e' or anything
similar, I still only get one message marked as expirable.

How should I be using "scope"?

However, if you _really_ want to send me an e-mail,
replace "nospam" in my address with "aeolia".
