6.6.5 The Empty Backend

nnnil is a backend that can be used as a placeholder if you have to specify a backend somewhere, but don't really want to. The classical example is if you don't want to have a primary select methods, but want to only use secondary ones:

     (setq gnus-select-method '(nnnil ""))
     (setq gnus-secondary-select-methods
           '((nnimap "foo")
             (nnml "")))
