	Simply updating the .py file and stopping/restarting Mailman 
should cause Python to recompile the relevant .pyc file.  You can 
remove the .pyc file in order to force Python to recompile.

	Re-applying the patch should hopefully apply those parts which 
were not applied correctly in the first place, and skip the rest. 
But I'm guessing, too.
