This works:

(defun process-sender (sender)
  (gnus-kill "From" sender '(gnus-summary-mark-as-processable 1) t) )

(defun process-sender-at-point ()
  (interactive)
  (save-window-excursion          ; better way 
    (gnus-summary-select-article) ; to do this?
    (let ((sender (gnus-article-header-value "From")))
      (process-sender sender) )))

I crosspost this to gnu.emacs.help - perhaps someone
there knows how to set the article in the summary
buffer but without brining it up visually, which would
un-necessitate the use of `save-window-excursion'...
