Yes. Those are the problems. Are you suggesting this as a way to post
via GG without it being a nuisance, or to read news without seeing
those problems? If the former, it is surely far FAR easier to just
read and write mail on python-list, or use Thunderbird, or somesuch,
than to go through these hoops just to be able to keep using buggy
software. People won't do it. And if the latter, well, that's my point
about it solving things only for you.

In fact, either way, it solves things only for you. The problem is
that there are a huge number of users who are not you.
