I'd be more political about it.

Something like:

We have found that sendmail has limitations that can cause it to be a 
performance bottleneck with mailman. If you are running sendmail and are 
having trouble with delivery delays or other performance problems, we 
suggest you look into an alternative delivery program -- we know mailman 
does not have these problems with a properly configured version of 
postfix, exim or qmail. This is not a problem with mailman: this is a 
design limitation in sendmail that we don't believe will be fixed in the 
forseeable future.

Yes, yes, I've finally finished my home page. Lucky you.
