I still try to find a good workflow for my Inbox.  In the past, I used
to tick nearly all articles, or make them unread, just to make them
appear the next time I select the group.

What I want in general is more control: I want to decide myself how Gnus
decides which articles it presents to me when I select a group.  In
particular, I want to have it depend on the information present in the

I wrote "set unread" or so and meant "make the article unread".

It's a feature when you enable the Gnus registry:

  (info "(gnus) Store custom flags and keywords")

Seems not many people use it so far, though.

I think you shouldn't need a hack to do this kind of thing.  A hack
would probably call `gnus-summary-limit', but it would be better if it
would be configurable out of the box.  Which I think is not the case.
The code responsible for group selection is quite complex, but I have
the impression that these things are hardcoded.
