Well, I think you misunderstand, Dan said at the beginning of this 
thread that it's *intentional* NOT to provide NNTP access to the 
Thunderbird lists as he thinks NNTP has to die for good because the 
people Thunderbird targets don't use it anyhow.
Well, this might be overdoing the "NNTP has to die" part slightly, but 
it's dead-on for at least the rest. I don't see from that perspective 
how mailman supporting NNTP access changes anything for that POV.
