I know, it's controversial.  :)  Still I've seen way too many problems
with %(name)s to be really happy with it.

If you'd like to add it to the Python distro (which after more
thinking is probably the right place for it), nothing!... yet.

Eventually the PSF will have a contribution form such as proposed here:


but it's not been approved yet, so we'd just have to remember to do it
later <wink>.

If you give me the green light, I'll add it to Python 2.3cvs.  Then I
can copy it into Mailman's bin/ directory "for convenience" <wink>.
