Thanks to everyone who responded.  Please forgive this crosspost to
the developers group.  Seeing that there is no way to do this without
changing the code, and that many Mailman users are not Python
programmers or do not have the permission to make such changes on the
server they are using, I think it would be best if this was made an
option that could be set through the web interface for each list.
That way administrators could choose immediate notifications, daily
summaries, or both.

THANX!! :)
