Interesting.. I've grabbed this, and have modified it for 2.1b3...

Some things I changed:

1) It was calling something called "env" in the shebang, which I had to put 
/usr/local/bin/python (if anyone has a suggestion on this, I'm happy to 
take it, of course... as I mentioned eariler, I am a fledgling programmer 

2) I changed the types to:

     type = "post"
     types = (("-admin$", "admin"),
              ("-bounces$", "bounces"),
              ("-confirm$", "confirm"),
              ("-join$", "join"),
              ("-leave$", "leave"),
              ("-owner$", "owner"),
              ("-request$", "request"),
              ("-subscribe$", "subscribe"),
              ("-unsubscribe$", "unsubscribe"))

(I suppose I could get rid of the bounce() function, but I figured I'd keep 
it in as a "catch all"...)

Just thought I'd share this.. :)
