Here, are we talking about an "interaction"
interface (composing etc.) or a search
interface, or both?

I *love* the Emacs Gnus interface which is the
same for accessing mail, Usenet and mailing
lists as NNTP newsgroups. Look, here is the
same screenshot once more! [1]

In general I don't like web interfaces (or web
programming) and certainly not when it handles
stuff you use every day.

However *search* might be the exception that
confirms the rule - makes sense, a web
interface to the web, right?

I suppose the reason I never look into or found
the Gmane web archive is I always found the
posts I was looking for thru Google, which led
me to the mailing lists own archives.

But wait, shouldn't that interface be uniform
as well, just as the access points? I suppose,
but it is a somewhat rare case and I'm fine
consuming information with Emacs w3m.
It doesn't have to look exactly the same
every time.
