I've never tried reading the mailing list directly (I'm not willing to
give up slrn), but the last time I ran NNTP threading tests (I refuse
to admin how much time I spent writing a Python app to do that), My
Usenet feed was noticably worse than Gmane.  Gmane had a fair amount
of breakage as well, but was better than Usenet.
