Huh - I (foolishly) didn't realize gmane actually had NNTP, I've always
used it to search mailing lists. If the list dumped to usenet (much like
c.l.python) I'd post through sunsite.dk, which is a very nice usenet
provider. But that still meant several annoying mailing list
subscriptions.

... man, I'm really glad I read your post :-)
