Would it be so bad if the Mailman FAQ/README read as follows?

  If you are having performance problems and are using sendmail,
  don't bitch to us.  Change to a more capable MTA like Exim,
  or Postfix instead (<insert URLs and pointers to READMEs>.  If you
  are married to sendmail, you can try the following approaches
  <insert references here> but they are NOT recommended and they
  come with a variety of technical tradeoffs that may or may not fit
  your situation.
