I would expect this, since NNTP and SMTP both have independent
clients.  But the Web UI *is* the client (not the browsers, which are
"thin" clients).  That means that supporting a web UI requires a lot
of development resources to respond to the slings and arrows of
outrageous (and outraged) users.

I think the first thing to do would be to compare the HK UI and
Gmane's UI, and see if there are any features of Gmane we can and
should adopt.
