Assuming you know how to set procmail up initially, it's pretty
simple really, just change the alias for posting to the list to
be simply the mailman user (which can't be aliased to anything
else), then, in ~mailman/.procmailrc:

* ^TOlistname@example.com 

        :0 Wh: msgid.lock.$LISTNAME
        | formail -D 8192 $HOME/msgid.cache.$LISTNAME

        | $MMHOME/mail/wrapper post $LISTNAME

[repeat for each list]

# when we reach this point, we should have been processed
# by *something*.  If we have, we can discard it, otherwise
# let the admin look at it.

* PROCESSED ?? yes


I haven't tested this, though, so don't blame me if you break
something.  :)  Anyhow, it should be included in mailman, yes.  :)
