I've been thinking about how (and where) I can put up a demo of MM2.1
that people could play with, but could not be (ab)used for spamming
purposes.  I think I know what I need to do, but it's a matter of
finding the resources (both time and system) to do it.

So at the moment I don't have a good way for someone to look at the
web interface.

Mailman itself can install just about anywhere, as can Python.  But
you will have to get some cooperation from your web hoster in order to
hook Mailman up to the system's mail and web servers.
