Retroactively cross-posting articles

Here's my problem: I run a mail-to-news gateway. (<URL:
http://gmane.org/). When people "cross-post" to several mailing
lists that are all being gated into Gmane, the second (and
subsequent) copies of the messages will be denied posting, since that
Message-ID has already been posted on Gmane.
Gmane currently just generates a new Message-ID for the denied
messages, but this breaks threading.
It would be nice if it were possible to retroactively cross-post a
message. To be able to say "alter message MESSAGE-ID to have this
Newsgroups header and be cross-posted to these groups". How hard
would it be to hack up something like this?
