You are my hero. Could you do the same for the "All reported X has
been processed. Check for [[Y]]" link too? Thanks in advance!

More cookie hell. Store the user's preferred frame configuration in a
safe place. Keep track of when frames are resized and remember their
new dimensions (can this be done?)

I had to make the subjects+authors frame slightly thinner in order to
make room for 75+ columns of text in the main window. Not having to do
this again every time I view the interface would be a big win.

You were concerned about users with small screens in another thread.
My subnotebook has a small screen with the usual roughly 4:3 "TV"
dimensions (I think technically 1024x768 or something like that) where
a wide frame above the main frame would make more sense than having
the two frames side by side. It would also be nice if the headers were
summarized in the top frame in this view, and not displayed in the
main frame at all (except optionally of course, C-u g and all that).

Maybe you could claim prior art?

The problem is the fixed width of the table.

Not in any settings I've found.  But if you find any such settings,
please post them here.

If there are no such settings, it might be an idea to make this a
feature request?

It can probably be done...

Yup.  I'm not sure whether the side-by-side layout makes sense.  It
certainly feels more cluttered now than it used to do.

That's a bit more tricky, 'cause I only have the author name,
simplified subject and date when generating the summary buffer.

It's similar to the view presented by Forte Agent.  The main
difference is that the threads are closed by default and needs to be
opened by clicking on them.

Ie. a working treeview.

If this were a democracy, I'd vote to keep this behavior.  The HTTP
interface seems best suited for instant gratification.  Poor folk
probably should stick with the bandwidth-conserving NNTP interface. ;)
