The idea is that you would retreive Zope membership and Mailman membership
from a single relational storage. This is especially important with really
large sites. So yes it would be integrated.

You could probably us ZClient to bang each message in as it shows up, and
instantiate a ZClass. WE've index 18,500 messages in ZCatalog on just
a regular desktop Linux box (nothing fancy, mayb 128Mb RAM, though I think
64MB), and retreival time is on the order of 1/10th - 1/4 second for most
searches. Now the actual indexing was much more expensive, but done
one at a time, it shouldn't be a major issue.
Note that what we're talking about wouldn't be for managing list options,
just for membership.
