I don't know of any plugin replacement for cpickle or any current
effort to store the entire list config in an SQL database (it's on the
'futures' list), but there are member adaptors for Mailman that will
store the membership portion in the config in a mySQL database. It
doesn't seem like that's what you're looking for, but see
