Well, you asked how to slow it down ...

OTOH, it won't be that slow. If your MTA as as blinding fast as you
say, I imagine that for moderate sized messages, say 10 KB, it would
take well under a minute to deliver to the MTA.

I don't know how many members are on the many lists at python.org, but
many of these lists have personalized and/or VERPed delivery and thus
send an individual message to each subscriber, and it doesn't seem to
be an issue there.
