This patch has been updated to apply to Mailman 2.1.6.  It's available
.  It includes prior work from Stefan Schlott.  I am running
mailman-ssls_2.1.6-0.1_i386.deb now, it is usable.  (Although I wouldn't
yet recommend to deploy it in production environments!)

The S/MIME functionality is scheduled to be implemented at 2005-10-15.

Comments on the code are still very welcome (but you guessed that :)
