While not the author of the original letter...

News Peruser allows this, AFAIK not available as a .deb package.
It's a bit klunky and still pretty heavily mouse-reliant but I keep
hoping for more keyboard shortcuts... Still, I don't read very much 
news from home so I don't feel too constrained...

There's also [x]skim which I don't know to much about as it didn't work
with my ISPs news server...  no .deb AFAIK.
