	The Python code opens Python "pickle" files for the list 
configuration, user settings, etc..., creates HTML for the web pages, 
takes the input from the web page, and writes the relevant 
information to the "pickles".

	It is possible to set up a reverse web proxy that sits in front 
of the Mailman web server, however.
