Definitely. and I've sent the lsat few days immersed in postfix 
documentation, and it has some real interesting stuff that can be used 
for optimizing some of what I do. I really like the idea of a direct 
mysql interface, since it means I can load most of my configuration data 
into a central server and not have to worry about migrating it out to 
the farm anymore. It also makes doiing thigns like a distributed list 
server possible, since you can have two or three boxes out in round 
robin, and you can tweak the aliases data in the database to have them 
route list info to processing boxes on the fly, so you can load balance 
across multiple machines.

Lots of fun stuff here, although it might not be approppriate for a 
general mailman release, since it can't depend on these functions, I'm
