Uhm.. the thing is, that the "parent" newsgroup is a
real newsgroup and not just "part of the hiearchy".

And yes, it's possible to subscribe to it, by limiting
the search to just this one group. But it would be nice
if such a news group could be subscribed just by selecting
it in the view when also the sibling groups can be seen.
