[Mailman-Users] Efficient handling of cross-posting

I was speaking in terms of the practical reality of a 100% unpaid all- 
volunteer project, like Mailman. There are simply way too many other  
things going on that are much higher priority.

If you pay certain Mailman developers real money for such a feature,  
then it will get done. If you write such a feature yourself or get  
someone else to write it for you and contribute that back to the  
Mailman project, then there's at least a decent chance it may be  
considered for inclusion in a future release, although you should keep  
in mind that it takes a fair amount of time and effort to validate  
someone else's code, albeit somewhat less than writing it yourself.

I don't see any other possible options as far as the Mailman project  
is concerned.
