I have no idea. You could always file something in the tracker,
and if it's a known issue or something that is out of the control of
Mailman, they can provide that information at that time. I would
also hope that they would update the FAQ Wizard in this case.

Editors like emacs, nvi, or vim can usually handle arbitrarily
large binary files without too much problems. But there may be
better ways to resolve this issue.

There are probably some Perl or Python scripts that have been
hacked together, but I also believe that the "formail" program from
the "procmail" package would be useful in this case.
