;;; Commentary:

;; This code provides modeline notification of when certain groups contain
;; unread messages. Groups for whom unread messages should be indicated are
;; chosen by setting a group parameter.

;; Clicking on a group in the modeline will enter that group and view the new
;; message.

;; Code:
