[NNTP] Command to list wanted groups for transit peers

So, most (at least non-binary) peering arrangements include a list of
groups the server wants to accept. Usually this is configured by hand,
but there are automated out-of-band methods to do it automatically (e.g.
GUP, the Group Update Protocol).
I think a better way to do it would be a new command, which would list
the groups the server wants to accept as a wildmat. For instance:
S: 200 Server ready.
S: 101 Capabilities list follows.
S: 2xx List of groups follows.
C: CHECK <...
This would be an "extended" wildmat like INN uses; I don't think @ is
available in the RFC 3977 wildmats.
