I think I'll need downloadable clients if I want to make something like google talk. Then I'll need to implement server side programming also. I think google app engine would be suitable for this as it is going to be always online.

While that's the canonical archive, the UI is awful.  I find gmane's
web UI to be _far_ more friendly and useful than the pipermail archive
UI:

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.python.general/737271/

 1) The search facility sort-of works (though using google with
    site:gmane.org:/gmane.comp.python usually works better).

 2) You can post from the gmane web UI.

 3) It offers both a threaded and a flat, blog-like version.
