Allow filter to delete unwanted headers during download

When updating headers in many groups, the large number can overload NewsLeecher and bring it to a standstill. Many headers are spam (e.g. 774 byte headers) and sometimes I want to get headers only from a particular poster and reject the rest. After the download (often having to kill NL with Task Manager and restart it) I can filter and delete the unwanted posts but it would be better if NL would delete them immediately based on my filters. Even better if it didn't download them at all but I'm not sure that's possible. There are Article Ignore Filters for matching subjects and posters but they're too limited and not easy to enable/disable for different downloads.
