I'm in the middle of migrating my TMDA/Mailman setup from Mailman
2.0.13 to 2.1.2 and had expected to hit this, but I didn't.  Things
"just work" as they did. e.g, from TMDA's log:

  Date: Wed Sep 17 18:22:11 CDT 2003
  From: Jason R Mastaler <jason at tux.org>
    To: tmda-testing at Mastaler.COM
  Subj: there
  Actn: OK (from-mailman -attr=members /var/lib/mailman/lists/tmda-testing ok)(619)

So I'm scratching my head wondering why I'm so lucky.  Was this fixed
in Mailman 2.1.2?  Nothing has changed in TMDA between 0.75 and the
current 0.84 that would account for this I don't think.
