There are unsupported patches for an LDAP member adapter (and
similar tools), but they are for storing information about the users
and the lists into a database. So far as I know, no one else has
come up with any patches for any other parts of the system to use a
database as a backend.
Pipermail itself takes 7th edition "mbox" formatted mailboxes
(text files, actually) as input, and creates ".html" files (another
special case of text file) and other types of text files as output.
No databases here.
