 Hmm,  twisted/news/database.py should have all the stuff it needs 
already -
maybe makeGroupSQL() will need to be modified a bit so that
twisted/tap/news.py can tell it which groups should be moderated and which
shouldn't.  twisted/tap/news.py will probably have most of the action; 
it'll need
code to let the user specify moderated/unmoderated to mktap somehow, maybe
with another --groups parameter, or with some indicator in the groups file.

Maybe it's time twisted.news got a *real* configuration interface :) 
 I'll ponder
that a little (maybe something fun with woven), and if you(/anyone else) 
any ideas on this, I'd love to hear them.
