Shouldn't you just be able to put a colon after the newsgroup name
and rename it to ~/.newsrc? Or does slrn use a non-standard
.newsrc?

Yes. Scripting gyrations are not necessary.

A script isn't necessary, but automating the process of subscribing to
new interesting groups from a list compiled elsewhere could be useful.

Anyway, I haven't written a script yet, but I'll do so eventually, if
only becuase I'd learn from attempting it.
