Really? That would contravene the GNU license, surely? The FAQ says that 
they distribute a binary of the compiled parts, but not the source. They've 
added at least one script "apple_config_list", but that _is_ source code, 
so it _is_ shared.

The FAQ also says they've created a GUI interface to help edit the config 
file. It doesn't say they've modified Mailman at all.
