[Mailman-Developers] Bounces, Pickles, Coding Styles Oh My

Calloo Callay!

So I'm spelunking about. I don't like the way the current UI doesn't 
tell the admin about bounciness of users, so I was looking to see what 
is known.

After some non-trivial meditation on BounceRunner.py I think I know the 
difference between verp_probe and verp_bounce, despite not quite knowing 
what VERP means, the comment string for the two functions being 
identical, and the bodies of them being identical as well save a tiny 
little memory stanza.

Would someone be willing to change verp_probe's docstring to more 
clearly illustrate its function?

Also, I'm finding a fair number of files that aren't pep8/styleguide.txt 
happy. anyone care if I at least correct tab/space mixing, and/or make 
it otherwise style-guide correct?

As much as I appreciate the principles of code-hiding, it's been a bit 
of a pain to use the interpreter to figure out what is stored in a pickle.

Since I can't read the pickle file with my eyes, perhaps a little less 
obscuration might be OK?


list.members['i at mindlace.net'] doesn't work. In fact, I can't find any 
function that gives me a member in its entirety.

It would help me if I could just see the underlying data; any 
suggestions on how?
