You must not have been reading the list 3-4 days ago when I raised this very question.

The stuff's not there yet.  Also, those directions are incomplete.  If you thoroughly
understand sendmail, and can hack your m4 files, see:

For what the author says is a relatively recent copy of the handler and an example
mc file for using it (but you'll have to understand how to build the mailertable)

He's on vacation right now, and will officially contribute it later.

Note that it *only* works if you can dedicate an entire hostname's worth
of mail to mailman; i.e. if you have both users and lists that are both @something.com,
you can't use this.
