This all sounds useful and sensible. It should make it easier to
maintain gnus and to extend it to support new backends etc. I assume
that the idea is to change the runtime representation, while leaving
the serialized state in .gnusrc.eld unchanged.

Please write tests when doing this refactoring work, so that it is
easier to detect when changes cause compatibility problems.

Thanks for working on this,
