If so, hopefully people are working on that so you
soon can use Gmane the way it is intended instead

I don't know if there is a built-in way to do it,
but you can certainly automatize it thus, by
extracting the email address and then put together
a message!

You can get the header value with

Here is some code that shows how to put together
a message - by using the same functions somewhat
differently, you should be able to solve
your problem.

(require 'cl-macs)
(require 'gnus-msg)
(require 'message)

(defun mail-to-many (to subject body)
  (cl-dolist (this-to to)
    (gnus-post-news 'post "")
    (message-goto-to)          (insert this-to)
    (message-goto-subject)     (insert subject)
    (message-goto-body)        (insert body)
    (message-send-and-exit) ))

On, there is the Usenet newsgroup
alt.test for this kind of situation.
Probably there is a test newsgroup on Gmane as
well. If it is, then there is a test mailing list
as well!
