Well, it is an add-on.  However, it's not included as part of the 
standard Mailman package that we provide, and there really aren't any 
official parts of Mailman that aren't included in that package.  In 
this case, it's an add-on that is provided by some third party, which 
makes use of hooks that we do provide as part of the Mailman package.

So, there isn't any problem with those hooks (so far as I can tell), 
which means that whatever problems you're having would appear to be 
contained solely within that third-party add-on.

Good luck.

Please do let us know how things turn out.  We don't provide official 
support for third-party add-ons, but it can be useful for us to 
provide links to where people can get support, in case someone else 
in the future follows the same logic that you did.
