Summary: gate_news: Handling missing groups

Initial Comment:
At the moment, if a non-existing newsgroup is chosen
for mirroring, we break out of the loop:

    for listname in Utils.list_names():
[...]
        try:
            conn, first, last = open_newsgroup(mlist)
        except (socket.error, nntplib.NNTPError):
            break
[...]

I believe that, at least for some NNTPErrors, we should
do a "continue" instead.

My naive patch would be this: 

        try:
            conn, first, last = open_newsgroup(mlist)
        except nntplib.NNTPError:
            continue 
        except socket.error:
            break

But if people have good reason to break on
othernNTPErrors, we might want to do a more finegrained
check.
