Converts mailing lists to newsgroups and back

'gmane' funnels mailing lists into news groups. This isn't a new idea, but with Gmane no messages are ever expired from the server, and the gateway is bidirectional. You can post to various lists without being subscribed to them. There are currently 5,944 mailing lists subscribed to Gmane, with a total of 18,747,653 messages. The package includes we:search (a search engine), weaverd (a back-end daemon that generates thread and group views), weft (takes a mail or a news message and formats it into HTML), and loom (news reader and front end to weaverd and weft).
