Um... you are joking, right? IRC is not nearly so easy to follow history
(total lack of threads => chaos) and doesn't lend itself to quote-reply
As for different services, Google Groups doesn't appear to have a native
NNTP interface (there is even a Google Answer explicitly stating that
there isn't one), whereas gmane is very nearly the canonical NNTP
gateway for FLOSS projects, carrying hundreds (maybe even thousands) of
lists. Including vim-dev, which is also a Google Group :-).

True :-). (Actually, the patch still applied cleanly, sans needing to
type manually the name of the file to patch, since "post-review" is now
named "postreview.py". Alas, Review Board didn't seem to like the
resulting updated diff, so I made a new request, 1031.)
