FWIW, I'm using Thunderbird to access the Boost ML via Gmane NNTP (I use
Outlook for work-related emails, because that's the standard here). It
works quite well, especially for threading.

The only real drawback that I've noticed with it is that TB can only
remember one source email address for all of Gmane, so if you're
registered using different addresses to different lists it can be a
little painful. (There's probably an extension that can fix that.)
