as far as I know, so far several people have had thoughts and wishes about this
implement into mailman (including myself) but nobody is actively working on it

I'm very interested in helping you out with this... I've been thinking about
something myself, but somehow I never really got to it... I'm starting to
familiarize with the mailman code structure so maybe it would be easier for me
now... I do know that it would be a lot of
what about working on a seperate repositry and when we have something working
purpose it
to the core mailman develop team? 
or maybe we should actively debate on the impletation first and write down a
plan before we start
coding ;)
