Not quite correct. The actual work of MM CGI programs is done by 
regular Python scripts located in $prefix/Mailman/Cgi

These Python scripts are actually run by compiled C security wrappers 
launched by the web server but the Python scripts do the work. Only if 
you want to introduce an additional CGI program do you need to worry 
about the security wrappers.
