This is really cool! Please send me the latest version of mm-handler
so I can add it to the contrib directory. I've updated
README.SENDMAIL with the following text; does it accurately describe
the steps one should take to integrate Mailman and Sendmail? If not,
please let me know what changes should be made.

INTEGRATING SENDMAIL AND MAILMAN
David Champion has contributed a Sendmail mailer which you can use
so that Sendmail will automatically deliver to Mailman mailing
lists without manual intervention (i.e. updated an aliases file or
running newaliases). He suggests adding the following to your
MMailman, P=/etc/mail/mm-handler, F=rDFMhlqSu, U=mailman:other,
A=mm-handler $h $u
The mm-handler script can be found in the contrib directory; copy
this script to /etc/mail and in your Mailman/mm_cfg.py file, add
MTA = None
Now Sendmail should automagically deliver to the standard Mailman
aliases for mailing lists.
