Of course, there is no need to modify your history file in case you directly use "sm token".
Modifying it would be necessary in case you want to try NNTP commands like "ARTICLE message-ID"
but it is enough to check whether "sm token" works.

I doubt it can happen for the number of articles.  As for the size, maybe
with binaries; yet, it sounds a lot...
