[Mailman-Developers] Feature suggestion

Just had an idea for a cool feature.  

I run a humor list and keep the filesize limit fairly low, most of the people
are dial-up of course.  I don't want to mail bomb a ton of people because
someone stupidly e-mailed the 3.2MB aliens_1.mpg file.  Right now, I pretty much
just reject it that's it.  

However, my idea is this.  What if there was some sort of mechanism in place
that stored the file in a different type of archive, and instead of mailing the
file, it included a link to click on to pick up the file instead.  That way they
could see the file size first and whatnot and know what they were getting into
before they tried to download it.
