That's a good idea, but it hasn't been done yet.  If you actually want
to make these changes, I can outline how I'd like it done, or you can
wait a while, as we'll definitely move in that direction in the next
month or two.

By the way, you might want to wait before running mailman, because the
last release had a lot of major changes and untested software.  The
next version should be out soon (I'd say in the next week or two).

It's run lists with several thousands of subscribers, yes.
