make "follow thread" automatically adaptive

Given how quickly threads appear and disappear, it would be very helpful if Pan was a bit more "intelligent" and could automatically decide which threads to follow, rather than requiring a manual user selection to enable that.
For example, if the user has read 75% of the articles in a thread, then automatically download any new articles. The percentage should be user selectable. There would probably need to be a distinction between marking articles as read, and actually reading them.
A feature like this would make the newsreader seem to anticipate which articles the user wants to read, and would greatly improve the ergonomics without adding more choices/buttons.
