There's plenty of speed in the Mailmain command-line tools, too.

How big are your lists? How big is your archive? I have over
ten gigabytes of e-mail archives that go back many years, and it
takes Eudora quite some time to search through all of them. Even if
I limit myself to just the Mailman-related lists for which I've only
been a subscriber for a couple of years, it takes a while. On the
other hand, bin/find_member can search through all the lists hosted
on python.org pretty quickly.
