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.
