;;; Commentary:

;; Provide delayed posting of articles.

;;; Todo:

;; * `gnus-delay-send-queue' barfs when group does not exist.
;; * Integrate gnus-delay.el into the rest of Gnus automatically.  How
;;   should this be done?  Basically, we need to do what
;;   `gnus-delay-initialize' does.  But in which files?

;;; Code:
