Rumination on the new list idea, another take

Hmm, pondering complaints people give about the mailing list I wonder, could
debian.org host a nntp server for the debian lists?  Let those who want mail
get it, those who pay for the minute and what not could troll the nntp server.
This would avoid the "I had to download 600 messages and read 50" syndrome.
Threads are well managed (yes I know many mail clients do, but many dont).
Seems like a win.  We already archive the lists, this should not be hard.

Arrangements could be made to make it not be completely open to the public. We
could make it user/pass locked or some other scheme. 

Yes I realize that news gates exist, but I for one lack access to a decent news
