Could you give me some pointers to the relevant Mailman files I would need to
modify for the changes you suggested? Note that I'm not worried about

The anonymity is neither related to authorities nor paranoia, it's a user
requirement based on what they were previously using. At the moment, I have
added the 'edit email' patch so that I can trim out the headers by hand
(also, I can remove any disclaimer text and signatures that way). It's also
useful for testing what can and cannot be removed.
