More than 4 news server connections with pan

The pan news reader only allows 4 connections per news server when using the GUI.

However, by manually editing ~/.pan2/servers.xml, you can increase the connection limit to an arbitrary number (well, at least 20, which is the limit for my newsfeed).

~/.pan2/servers.xml before:

...
<connection-limit>4</connection-limit>
...

~/.pan2/servers.xml after:

<connection-limit>20</connection-limit>

Restart pan if it is already running for the change to take effect.
