Yes, but it works.  I use gmane for c.l.p mostly because I also use it for 
other Python lists that are *not* gatewayed to a Usenet group, I far prefer 
the newsgroup interface, and I like having all Python groups together in 
one block in the side-bar.  At one time, my newserver access was also less 
dependable than Gmane and switching back and forth was a nuisance.
