This originally sounded like a "too-simple-to-work" idea, but after thinking 
about it, it may be the best. If you mean QueueGroups with a separate runner 
for this particular list, then the milter would handle the throttle of the 
runner and relieve Mailman of the outgoing problems. It would really give me 
a little more control because of the sleep time of the queue runner along 
with the milter throttle. This will be a multiple-list server and only one 
or two lists would require the slowdown/pacing.

Sounds great. In fact, this is sort of what the Milter people suggested 
without the milter, although I didn't see where the throttling would occur.
