Hay Chris!

AFAIK, Mailman 2.1 is not going to be fixed to use any particular external 
database, but will have the hooks to use any external database.  Someone, 
perhaps you, will have to write the interface from Mailman to the database 

Someone may have already written such an interface for MySQL.  If they 
haven't yet, I'm sure it will come soon.  You should ask on the Dev list 
though, as this list is only for current production releases.

Good luck, and if you need any help in re-inventing this wheel, let me 
know, I've written a few...
