	No, it's not binary code.  Mailman is written in Python.  Python 
is shipped as source code, and only gets compiled when it is needed 
for execution -- think of it as a cross between interpreted languages 
(like Basic) and typical compiled languages (like C).

	If you make source code changes to Python and restart Mailman, 
they will be picked up.
