There won't be a cmmi recipe for MM3 (no configure; make; make  
install) at least from upstream, but I'm happy to work with distros to  
figure out the right way to package Mailman 3.

As for aliases, I think it won't be worth it.  I also want to  
standardize and make consistent all the command line options so that  
the whole suite of commands makes more sense.
