Tagger is in GLOBAL_PIPELINE, thus the process() function in
Mailman/Handlers/Tagger.py is called by IncommingRunner as one step of
the pipeline process. The same is true of all the other handlers
listed in GLOBAL_PIPELINE (or the pipeline attribute of the list if
any). See _dopipeline() in Mailman/Queue/IncomingRunner.py.
