| This makes some sense.  I don't know anything about the
| MysqlMembership.py adapter, but unlike the pickle-based standard
| adapter, it probably needs this call to mark the object as modified so
| that it will be stored in the db on the next save.  The standard adapter
| doesn't need this, because it's just going to pickle whatever the
| current state is.
| The patch is a bit icky, but probably useful and I don't think it can
| hurt the standard adapter.

This was discussed at length in October, 1985 in the thread that begins

In particular, see my post at
for an alternate patch which I thought was more complete. As I note in
that post, I was new to Mailman at that time and was reluctant to commit
that patch without additional input. In fact, I think I only acquired
commit privileges during the time of that thread.

In any case, I'll revisit it now for inclusion in 2.1.11.
