Please, let's not.  This is a case of difference of opinion on how to
organize a distribution, not of cheating on the social contract.

I do feel free to do so, but it's unlikely to happen in this
particular case.  I don't understand the Mailman install process, so
I'd have to work quite hard boning up.

Somebody who already knows could probably write the patch in the same
60 seconds it took me to scratch out that autoconf stuff, though.
