Good news on both fronts.  I've got a start on a redesign of the
bounce detection code so that the format recognizers are modularized.
I've got RFC 1894 (i.e. DSN) format, Qmail, and Postfix formats
working.  Well, as best as I can tell, since the latter two are all
guess work :(

I need to get the old code ported over (and hopefully sane-itized :)
and then I'm checking the stuff in.  I've also got a simple framework
for testing on bounce formats, so eventually we can just add more
specialized recognizers.

On the I18N front, Juan Carlos Rey and Victoriano Giralt have, I
believe, a working version of internationalized Mailman.  They've
signed the FSF papers, so I expect the next release will have support
for multiple languages.

Stay tuned, or keep an eye on mailman-developers and the CVS tree.
