Donn and Charlie posted good responses. I'll just add two things:
- I'm designing Mailman3's user database so that additional foreign
information can be stored with Mailman's concept of a user. We'll see
if this works out as planned.
- You can "just add" attributes to the MailList object, e.g. via the
extend.py machinery, and it will persist automatically, as long as the
value is pickleable.
