I understand your point and Tokio replied me at sf. Do you think that
is a feature that can be included on 3.0 ? I can keep extending it
over 2.1 line (updating 1029275) and add it to 3.0 tree. I'm not into
mailman project to deep (yet) but i'll read that page about mm3 at
zope.org now.

What's your opinion on distributors adding new features to mailman 2.1
packages? Considering that 3.0 won't be released soon is a good idea
announce that hot new features won't be added if not really needed on
mm2.1 tree, isn't it? jmo.
