One of the reasons for having the Agent at all is that you're supposed
to be able to read the groups if the server is down.  (Or, as in the
example, you typed the wrong password.)

So I think what Gnus does here is what it's supposed to, but I agree
with Ted's suggestion of marking the groups that are from servers that
Gnus thinks are down specially.

Strike-through is kinda intrusive, though.  Something a bit more subtle
would be nice...  or perhaps just a mark at the beginning of the line,
like what we do with non-Agented groups from servers that are down.
