We've seen a lot of CPanel folks coming here for help.  I basically
delete those, since we can never help them.  But a few times folks on
the list have expressed that we can't help them; that could easily be
interpreted as "Mailman won't support CPanel installs".

One frustrating item that is expressed periodically is that CPanel won't
open their source up.  It would be nice if they would provide some sort
of API or if they would release the source of their "Mailman widget"
that controls Mailman - then we *could* help them.

I'm very surprised that no one from CPanel has approached Barry or the
developers-list yet.  There is a lot broken with CPanel that could be
made much better with some shared ideas.
