Thanks a lot for all feedback.
Thanks to Stefan Schlott's fine work he has done earlier, the first
test-able version is available now, from
http://www.non-gnu.uvt.nl/pub/mailman/ . For those of you running
Debian GNU/Linux, packages are available too (both pre-build and source
packages). The patch is still a bit rough on the edges, but could be
interesting for developers.
Comments on the code are welcome (but you guessed that :)
The patch is submitted to the patch tracker too: it's Mailman patch
