Barry likes using -S to speed up the load process... loading site.py can be
a slow process. He cheats by adding the site-packages directory to his
sys.path directly, and I cheat by adding a symlink to site-packages/mimelib
from directly in my module directory. Barry'll probably add the former to
Mailman, or remove the -S, when making a real (read: functional) release. My
cheat is easier, especially when running multiple Mailmans on the same
machine :)
