Unlike my recollection of gnus 4.x bubble package, gnus 5.x bubbling has only
one mode, which is to add to the score, and only one way to do that, which is
to add 1, which is hardcoded.

IMHO it would be more effective, especially for people who add new groups
frequently and change in their interests, to allow another algorithm.

The simplest algorithm would be to allow a value of :top to sort any read group
to the top of the level that the group is in.  Others that are less drastic
include bubbling up by a fixed number of groups or by a proportion of the
number of groups between the group and the top group in the level.

In other words, I think another paradigm than adding to a group score is

This function basically hardcodes bubbling by 1.  After a while, there
is no bubbling because scores are too large.

Try bubbling by group ordering (up by 10 groups), or to the top of the
groups at a level, or by a percentage (up by 50% of the way to the

This is a handy function to add to `gnus-summary-exit-hook' to
increase the score of each group you read."
