Summary: Sendmail mailer in Python

Initial Comment:
This patch provide a Python implementation (with C 
wrapper) of a Sendmail mailer, if Sendmail is your MTA 
of choice, which removes the necessity of maintining an 
aliases database on your Mailman server. All subject to 
a bunch of conditions most prominent of which is that 
the server has to be pretty much dedicated to MM.

This patch draws on an original contribution by David 
Champion <dgc at uchicago.edu> which is included in 
the contrib directory of the Mailman 2.1b distribution as 
mm-handler.

See the README.SENDMAIL.mailer installed by this 
patch for differences between this and David's Perl 
original and more information of what you are getting into 
if you use this patch.

Versions of the patch for MM 2.0.13 and MM 2.1b5 are 
available.

This patch requires patch 644797 to be installed before 
it.

In the MM build directory say: 

patch -p1 < patch-filename

mailer-2.1-0.3.patch and mailer-2.0.13-0.4.patch have VERP 
handling added and a new feature to rejct delivery of mail to 
existing lists by adding the lists names to a 
SUSPENDED_LISTS dictionary variable defined in 
mm_cfg.py. This is  equivalent to deleting list aliases from the 
aliases file, while leaving the list itself in place, in a 
conventional sendmail configuration.

the mm_mailer script in mailer-2.1-0.2.patch now handles 
VERP'ed return addresses in bounced mail which I missed in 
the original implementation

mailer-2.1b6-0.1.patch is MM 2.1b6 compatible. It also folds 
the case of listname and servername for compaiblity with 
MMs naive belief that listnames are case all lower case. 
case "(Email addresses are not case sensitive, but they are 
sensitive to almost everything else :-)"
