 When a newsgroup is removed with rmgroup, nothing cleans up the articles
 in tradspool and timehash (and possibly also timecaf).  The old articles
 continue consuming disk space and, if the group is recreated, serve as
 land mines for the server when the article numbers get back to the same
 range.

 The easiest way to fix this is probably to provide an interface to delete
 all the articles from the spool immediately on an rmgroup.  We lose our
 current partial ability to recover from a mistaken rmgroup, but I think
 that's a good tradeoff.
