	MacOS X 10.3.9 has turned off all setuid (that's SETUID, not 
SETGID) shell scripts, but if you know the magic incantation you can 
turn them back on.  However, Python is not a shell script, so this 
isn't a problem for us.

	So far as I know, setgid works just fine on MacOS X, at least for 
non-shell scripts.  Of course, Mailman uses setuid and not setgid, so 
this wouldn't be a problem for us anyway.
