Python will notice the changes the next time it is told to import
Defaults.py, and compile a new Defaults.pyc.

You can force it to happen by doing (in a suitable location)
import Defaults.py
but there is no real need to do so.

*Most* changes which one is tempted to make in Defaults.py should instead
be made in mm_cfg.py, which is imported after Defaults.py and so can change
any value found in Defaults.py.  The install process for a Mailman upgrade
will leave your mm_cfg.py alone but replace the Defaults.py file.
