	That could be a problem, yes.

	I don't normally try to do that, no.  But then, I don't normally 
need to apply patches to my Mailman installations, either.

	There are some postings from people who maintain the lists for 
freebsd.org or lists.apple.com that you will find in the archives, 
some of which are also linked from the Mailman FAQ Wizard -- search 
for "performance", and you should see all the ones that are linked.

	There's definitely a lot of wisdom encapsulated in these various 
posts.  I would encourage you to read all these FAQ entries and 
messages, and then ask any further questions you may have.

	This is an area of the Mailman user interface that could use 
improvement, yes.  For the moment, try using the "find" feature 
within your browser.
