In all honesty, I don't know the details.  Looking at the smtplib code
in Python 2.6 though, it essentially delegates everything to the socket
layer.  If the pem/cert files are given, it wraps the socket in an ssl
socket, though it only provides a subset of the options available to
ssl.wrap_socket().  That's the extent of smtplib's support AFAICT.

Mailman won't support anything the underlying smtplib module doesn't
support, so if changes need to happen there, it's best to do that in the
context of Python development (though even there, likely nothing will
change until Python 3.3 which is a long way off).
