There are still a few active groups, but reading e-mail lists via NNTP
(in my case using slrn) via gmane is a huge reason to have an
efficient, well-designed "news" client.

If usenet does really pack it in someday and I have to switch from
comp.lang.python to the mailing list, it will be done by pointing slrn
at new.gmane.org -- not by having all those e-mails sent to me so I
can try to sort through them...
