If you look at what people _use_ Yahoogroups for, it's not just for a
mailing list in general--it's being used to schedule get togethers, keep
track of members' birthdays, et cetera. Mailman doesn't do all that (at
least, not efficiently, unless you count some poor schmuck being stuck
with the duties of emailing the whole list every week/month/etc to keep
everyone up to date ;) ). And, from the past comments I've seen on the
subject, it's not something that interests the dev team (and that's
fine.. no one said they had to find it interesting .. I'm just
mentioning it as this subject has been brought up in the past...

See above :)
