Auto delete downloaded messages on gmail with a fetchmail sucker?  I *think* I 
am, but I see the man page says I need to set an option.

-K | --nokeep
              (Keyword: nokeep) Delete retrieved messages from the remote 
mailserver.  This option forces retrieved mail to
              be  deleted.   It may be useful if you have specified a default 
of keep in your .fetchmailrc.  This option is
              forced on with ETRN and ODMR.
