Well, gmane's source code is free software, and it contains such
functionality. It's documented to be work-in-progress and very much not
in a releasable state -- changing that and also making it applicable to
other archives such as the lists.gnu.org one would be a very cool thing
to have. :-)
OTOH, gmane already offers some gnu.org lists; so I can see that the
actual incentive to do such work is limited.
