It provides a stable, documented management interface so people can create their own web UIs to control Mailman 3 in whatever way they want. Granted your end user's aren't going to do this, but the people who want it can, and more easily than by porting Mailman 2.1 to Python 3.
Can you share with me (us) the number and size, along with the industry or operations arena, of those people who are creating their own web UI.
I honestly don't believe that there is that much interest for that
outside of a handful of entities (Brian, CPanel, Canonical, and
LinkedIn?). I feel like if the interest was greater, we'd see more
evidence of that in the Gitlab issue tracker and or on the MM3 lists.
Convince me that I'm wrong.
