The problem with this is that when searching through gmane, and 
selecting a single message with a hit, one gets only to see that message 
without its context thread. At least I could not find out a way to 
switch from the found message to the thread in which it occurred.

The search facility on www.mail-archive.com is much nicer in that 
respect, but as mentioned, as of yesterday seems to have forgotten about 
all messages prior to November 2007, and from 2008.

Too bad...
