I don't use incoming patters, but the way newsfeeds work, the
newsgroups line of an article can only be checked *after* that article
has been received. A feeding server either sends all the articles it has
for a peer, or it asks if the peer wants a certain message-id, and then
sends that or not. There is a filter_messageid() function in
filter_innd.pl, but as said, the content of the Newsgroups header are
not known at that time.
