I do this too - it works great - especially as I use kmail and can't stand 
knode.

I go with most of the caveats in the above post - just two more

Careful with mailman - it lets you add the mailing list ID into the subject 
area of each post - careful when posting back to the list, and

Careful with archiving - I discovered that mailman was archiving all the posts 
to the newsgroup - which was great until I realised it was taking up disk 
space and I could see any obvious way to purge the archive.
