Yes, it's a pretty good service. I've been using it to set up 
some other mailing list mirrors. (You don't need to own a list
to do this)

You can see the w3.org directory here:
http://old.nabble.com/w3.org-f11578.html
where many w3 lists are already mirrored.

I was expecting that the person originally setting up the
Nabble mirror would be present on the list to give his/her
view on it. 

I'm not fully up to date with the latest enhancements to the
new Nabble service, but last time I looked at it I thought the
new "directory page" was not as good as the old one. Also, it
may be desirable to migrate all the w3 mirrors together, to 
keep a consistent directory page.
