Mosaic USENET client?

It occurs to me that, now we have forms and mechanisms for posting
things, it should be entirely possible to write an HTTP server that
posts USENET news articles, and behaves like a full function USENET
news client, while the donkey work of actually browsing articles is
still done directly using NNTP.

Anyone doing this? I'm not volunteering (too little time), but it's a
neat project for someone, and I would find it much preferable to browse
in Mosaic rather than xrn. An obvious candidate for a PERL module in Plexus....
