Maybe I'm missing how to do something, or there's no current way to do
it -- in which case, this is a feature request.

I want to mimic the read: and post: access group parameters in
readers.conf with the perl hook.  IE: I want to
specify which newsgroups the user can read and post to, rather than
have a boolean for reading and posting on a global list of newsgroups.
Is there any way to do that using

Perhaps a modification where instead of booleans, the read and post
parameters from the authenticate() return array are wildmat
expressions, used if the newsgroups wildmat string is empty?  Is that
