It would surely be more homogeneous.

group pgpsigned {
    message: [checkgroups newgroup rmgroup]
    group big8 {
        from: "..."
        newsgroups: "comp.*|..."
        action: "verify..."
    group fr {

group other {

I am not sure how to deal with "message" (three nested message groups in
the big8 group otherwise).
It will match in order (since the "search" function realizes a depth-first
search) except if the tree is "reversed".

Is there already a Perl parser for such INN config files?  Or an existing
Perl module?  It would be good not to rewrite controlchan in C...
And also not to have to maintain several parsers...
