The Gmane software is, unfortunately, very, very far from being a
turn-key solution.  It's more a collection of software being
gaffa-taped together.  I mean, the admin interface is an Emacs mode
talking to a CVS server, for instance.  :-)

Having a One Message System To Rule Them All is the ultimate goal,
though.  Having a system where the user is free to choose the most
convenient way to interact doesn't seem like it should be too much to
ask, but it seems like web board authors don't think along those
lines at all.
