Thanks for that, but I was actually commenting on the munging itself,
not how Gnus is handling it on display.  It seems something (GMANE?) is
chewing on the articles and replacing the Message-IDs with "Mailman"
ones, meaning that references and threading are broken non-predictably
depending on the path messages take.

The lack of interest, the disdain for history is what makes computing
not-quite-a-field.  [...]  They have no idea where [their culture came
from] and the Internet was done so well that most people think of it
as a natural resource like the Pacific Ocean, rather than something
that was man-made.  When was the last time a technology with a scale
like that was so error-free?  The Web, in comparison, is a joke.  The
Web was done by amateurs.
