I can't, I'm not the admin there.

Nobody wants that.

No. I'm not the one, that's why I cannot be too fussy. :/
I simply noticed the problem, and told you about it. I even shown you how 
others tried to solve it. Saying 'it's not a big problem' might be true, 
but it just doesn't bring us any closer to the solution, does it?
I just hoped all the problems I mentioned will be put in the todo list. 
It needn't to be on top of the list (I can't be too fussy here, either 
;)), but it would be bad if the problems get forgotten.

I'm just pointing out how mailman could be improved in future... That's 
how I can help in mailman development.

I do hope so. :)
