Are you sure, jerski? I've tried to do what you said but this procedure will give you a Google account, which is different from a Gmail account.
There is no escape, only an already registered Gmail user can make you a new Gmail user.
Maybe I didn't understand you?

No exploit talk allowed. Get Gmail the invite way.
