I think that will be problematic, given the wide variety of MTA
extension frameworks. A better approach would be to structure the
Mailman code in such a way that large parts of it can be used as a
library, which could serve as the basis for sites writing their own MTA
extension, or any other specialized Mailman-based application.
This is actually one of the main reasons why I've been moving the bulk
of the bin and cron scripts to inside the top-level Mailman package for
2.2. Those scripts need to be refactored a bit better, but they do
provide some useful higher-level operations that other Python programs
can now get access to (e.g. by putting /usr/local/mailman on your
sys.path and doing good ol' imports).
