John, it worked perfectly.  For the benefit of the archives, note that I had
to restart Mailman for the changes to take effect.

I think some list admins will want to keep the body attachment so I may work
on a hack when I get some time.  The listname variable is available in the
module so worst case I should be able to hard-code listnames in some control
structure, though I'll probably try to create a text file of listnames that
can be looped through.  I'm not a Python programmer, but I program in other
languages so I'm optimistic I can learn to write the necessary code quickly.
If I make any progress I'll post to the list.
