Yes, Mark is right. This reminds me about China Olympics where the tv 
broadcast is said to have delays of about 20 seconds.

Maybe, this is an option for the future - custom defned delays per list 
(delays between a message is received by Mailman and passed on to MTA)?

I can hardly imagine this is useful unless someone watches over a list 
all the time or the delay is really big (like 8 hours or so)? But with 
too big a delay, poster is likely to resubmit... :)
