	There is a slightly older version of the script which was 
included in the contrib/ subdirectory of Mailman-2.1.7, and I 
uploaded an updated version of the script to this page just yesterday.

	I do not yet know what it takes to get this stuff automatically 
included as part of the tarball generation process, but we're working 
on that.  The updated version should certainly be included in the 
next official release, even if it's still just in the contrib/ 

	Myself, I would also love to see it get re-written in Python, and 
the recent discussion we've had on this list with Bryan Carbonnell 
regarding his Python tool (mentioned in 
could ultimately be incorporated into one larger and more 
full-featured part of the overall Mailman system.

	Of course, that also means that I won't have to maintain it, 
since I write in Bourne shell and not Python.  ;)
