My Scroll To CMM Needs Help To Work With All Mailman Digests

I'm looking for what is constant in all Mailman digests. For example,
- Do all digests start with "Send <list name> mailing list submissions
- Do all digests have a "Today's Topics" section?
- Do all messages start with "Message: <message number>"?
- Do all digests end with "End of <list name> Digest"?
I'm working on a Contextual Menu
Module/Item/Plugin/whatever-Apple-calls-it-today for Mac OS X. It
allows the user to Control-Click in a mailman digest and get a "Scroll
To" submenu which allows easy scrolling directly to any message.
I originally wrote the code to work with digests of Apple's mailing
lists (http://www.lists.apple.com/). Now I see that Apple and many
others use Mailman. So, I decided to try to generalize my code to work
with all Mailman digests.
I don't know Mailman or anything about it. I need some help so that my
code can robustly scan Mailman digests. I realize that I will probably
have to work with text in non-English languages if I want my CMM to
work with non-English digests.
