Is the addition of these lines to mm_cfg.py all that is essentially 
required:-  ?

POSTFIX_ALIAS_CMD = '/usr/bin/sudo /usr/local/sbin/mailman.aliases'

So basically I'm pretending to be running Postfix instead of Sendmail and 
telling Mailman where to put the newly created aliases.

What is the last line for?
