	From the Mailman side, the canonical answer is FAQ 1.26 at 

	I can pretty much guarantee you that some of these things will 
never be integrated into Mailman.

	Someone could certainly take Mailman and make it a component of a 
system like Yahoo!Groups, and then make that system available either 
as a freely available package or as a paid system, but that would be 
beyond the scope of Mailman itself.
