A downside is that there is no "proper" place for Defaults.py and mm_cfg.py

They are configuration, so they go into /etc somewhere.  They are
executable, so they DON'T go into /etc.  Not a problem with the stock
Mailman layout, but it does cause problems for one trying to match the file
system standard (such as the Red Hat packaging of Mailman, which shotguns
Mailman into several different places--and is well done).
