If anyone has an specific requirements for how Mailman & LDAP combine
drop me a mail.  For example I'm guessing most poeople will want to
integrate with an already existing directory service... Getting the
requirements for the authenticator right (there might be a need for 2
types) is key to it working for people - ie NDS, openldap, etc
