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.
