Does this mean that message delivery is not handled at all when the
incoming mail is passed to mailman, and every message needs to wait for a
cronjob to run ? 
I found the method used in 1.1 (try to deliver immediatelly, if it fails,
the cronjob will handle it) much more appropriate, even though it often
resulted in mail duplication (if the mail was handled the same time when
the cronjob was run, it was sometimes delivered by both methods), which
could have been fixed by some better locking mechanisom...
