I'll quickly point people to TwistedMatrix <www.twistedmatrix.com>.
Twisted is a framework for network protocols. It comes with SMTP,
NNTP, HTTP, etc.
I haven't spend much time with it, but a few weeks ago I wanted to do
some testing of Mailman's news/mail gateway without going through the
hassle of bring up a traditional nntpd, or using some *.test public
The cool thing was that it took literally 3 commands to bring up a
fully functional nntp server. It might also serve as a nice framework
for bringing up a local gmane-alike. Of course Twisted's written in
Python, so that's an advantage <wink>.
