Er, sorry, I didn't mean here to support the "MLM developers do not  
buy into" part of the above. I think that what's planned for MM3 IS  
to support SQL access for those things. SQL provision should be  
enough that portal projects can then build list modules around  
Mailman. Actually, they already could - at a push.

Seems to me the big misunderstanding in this debate lies around the  
differences between Mailman 2 and Mailman 3. As far as I can see,  
they are big differences - of the sort that Kevin is looking for.  
Unfortunately, they're not highly visible - probably due to the fact  
that they're at the early stages of development.

Perhaps someone should point Kevin at the Mailman 3 codebase, so he  
can develop views from there.
