Public bug reported:

Mailman seems to be mangling messages which contain lines with
leading hyphens.  For instance, the attached message is the original
as sent from my MUA to the zope at zope.org, zope-dev at zope.org,
and zope-announce at zope.org lists.  Those lists add a leading '- '
to lines using '---' as a REST title underbars, as well as REST unordered
list items.

- https://mail.zope.org/pipermail/zope-announce/2011-January/002256.html

In addition to hurting the readability, this mangling also destroys the PGP
signature on the mail.
