Is there any particular reason why there is no option (that I can find) to
configure the web interface to use basic authentication instead of

I am just setting up a mailman site, and I know that I will have some
admnistrators connecting from a web browser that supports basic
authentication, but not cookies.


The local FreeNet uses a very old version of lynx that does not support
cookies, and I want to allow those FreeNet users to use mailman....
However, when using lynx they are constantly prompted for the admin
password, which makes the whole thing fairly unusable.
