[nos-bbs] what constitutes NEW msgs ?

On second thought, I'd like bulletins to work differently from messages 
addressed to me personally. I'd like a bulletin to be 'new' if I haven't 
listed it in a previous session or read it. So if I see its subject but 
log out without reading it, it's not 'new' in the next session. There 
are lots of bulletins, and I often glance at a bulletin's subject and 
immediately decide I never want to read it.

This would be nice but not essential, I think.

Best regards,
