Yeah still exactly the same problems as before.

I’m meaning from your side.  You’d *use* gmane *as* a workaround.  Gmane
per se is not a workaround and I agree it is great.

To me “the best” would be a tight integration of both smtp and nntp
clients/servers and mailing-list software, written in lisp (not python),
and work in P2P, and would primarily use cryptography for
authentication, if available (think DKIM+PGP+SASL+TLS, pick the
available ones).  But gmane is the best that actually exists right now
