In practice, this is not functionality that most news admins will ever 
use.  Also, it's not so clear exactly what constitutes a "thread" in all 

If you're using tradindexed for overview, you could do something like this 
to get all the Message-IDs:

> grep 'New newsreader' ~news/spool/overview/n/s/n/news.software.nntp.DAT \
  cut -f 5

And then pipe that into `xargs -n1 ctlinnd cancel` if you like.
