[Mailman-Users] Huge problem (in my opinion) with large lists...

We are running Mailman2.0beta4 and I'm noticing the following significant
issue.  As messages come in, they're dumped into a qfiles/ directory where
they're processed sequencially by qrunner.  One of our lists has over 100,000
subscribers.  Unfortunately, when a message is sent to this huge list, all
other mail messages (for any of the other lists on the server) are basically
"on hold" until this huge list receives their message.  I'm sitting here
watching the queue size grow.  qrunner seems to be running though (an strace
shows that it's zipping through the list of recipients).

Is there anything that can be done to give each queue (or list) its own
thread, so that the system does not come to a grinding halt when a huge
distribution is processed?
