Which gmane web interface?  it has several.  I think the ordinary gmane
interface (article.gmane.org) is awful, but I do like the
thread.gmane.org one.

The point here is that you need to distinguish between an archive and
the user interface.  I believe we can use patchwork as the UI to a back
end archive, and it's not impossible (except for all the extra
installation and maintenance on the admins) to run more than one front
end to an archive.
