I'm not planning to do something like this for leafnode-1, although some
scheduling for leafnode-2 might be useful.
To make this work, we'd have to sort across group boundaries (which
means heaps of changes), otherwise fetchnews could not skip to the next
group and come back later to a previous group to fetch the big stuff,
which is what this is all about.
