A mailing-list service for gmane

I'm an avid fan of gmane.
More often than not, I stumble on a random mailing list service that
breaks gmane in a way or another.
Whenever I'm discussing with a group of people about setting up a list,
I sometimes have the ability to suggest a free service. All I really
care in the end is that it works correctly with gmane, so I'm asking:
Is there a "recommended" list of free mailing list services that works
correctly with gmane that I could suggest, that doesn't require an
associated "project" like sourceforge?
I know google groups works more or less OK, but their web interface is
horrid to say the least, and I had several issues with their
undebuggable spam handling marking regular subscribers as junk.
But why don't we cut the middle man entirely?
Couldn't gmane itself host the list, *requiring* a valid group name as
part of the registration process?
I was really thinking of setting up such a free service myself, using an
existing minimalist list manager such as a patched mlmmj and ensuring
the list also gets a group name in the hierarchy.
Nothing fancy really, since gmane has basically everything else already.
I could even start the service myself if there was enough interest.
