	While we're at it, can we update the documentation so that we can 
deprecate FAQ entries 5.8 and 5.12?  It sure would be nice to not 
have so many people asking about support questions with Mailman 2.1.5 
using older versions of Python, or MTAs that don't implement VERP.

	Also, if we're going to require VERP support on the MTA with 
2.1.5 and beyond, can we go ahead and turn on "VERP_CONFIRMATIONS = 
Yes" in mm_cfg.py, so that we can also eliminate all the questions 
regarding the funky subject lines which led to FAQ 4.52?

	On a separate matter, the way that full personalization works is 
really, really annoying.  When enabling this on lists I manage, I've 
gotten more complaints than on all other items combined on those same 

	I'm going to work out a way to hack out the most offensive things 
and submit a patch, but has anyone else had issues with it?  Am I 
totally out in left field, or does someone else already have a patch 
that I haven't seen?
