Good. I'd still like to have it graphicaly configurable for each list,
so that it could be used for "scaling". Then, the limiting factor would
become how many incoming list mails and bounces the MLM machine could
process and archive. I suspect you could run 10 MDA machines flat out
before the MLM machine would have a problem.

You are correct. Dave gets to suffer for his workplace's policies. It's not
clear that accomodating them should be a design goal for Mailman.
