Hi again,
	While it would be excellent to have everyone using the same, 
it's just never going to happen. Yes, qmail/vpopmail is relatively 
popular, but not even close to the extent of sendmail usage & also 
not close to Postfix either. Exim is also a popular choice, as are 
Courier-MTA & Communigate Pro along with qmail & a pile of others, so 
it's best to allow Mailman the extent of running with any mail server 
you care to run, depending on your configuration.
	The other problem developers also face is that people running 
a particular OS & MTA, such as your choice of qmail is that there are 
a myriad of configuration options for that, using different paths for 
directories & so on, such as the option of running Mailman in any 
directory so chosen, so I believe Mailman developers have don the 
best they can with what they have to work with.

	Bye for now, Terry Allen
