(I'm very interested in checkins; I'm not very interested in "I tried to 
install Mailman and it didn't work, can you help?" buried in pounds of 
Sourceforge crap.  Those notifications from SF's bugtracking *suck*, is a 
large part of the problem; if they just had delta text, or even changebars, 
or something, they'd suck a lot less.)
