	From what we've been able to tell, Mailman is actually quite 
intelligent in terms of working around all the standard NFS problems 
with locking, etc....

	I'd still be leery of using NFS for a variety of other reasons, 
but it does appear that the Mailman code does everything it could 
reasonably do to minimize the known problems with NFS.
