Well, ezmlm works great - at least at the mailing part of the issue.
Mailman works a lot slower but it has more features (except of archive
commands). BTW it would be nice if we put an archiving method to Mailman
but I don't know which way would be the best.

Nope. It was in the INSTALL file but no one put it in until now.

It's not a good idea because this adds more latency and complexity. I think
four to eighteen bytes won't hurt anyone if they know who is the sysadmin.
