Not quite.  If he uploads his code as a patch to the tracker, we will 
most likely leave it there, and at some point it may get considered 
for inclusion in a future version of Mailman.  Beyond that, we can't 
make much in the way of promises.

I wouldn't say that I was channeling them.  I would say that I'm 
trying to do what I can to support them and to allow them to spend 
what little time they have on their "real" work, as far as the 
project is concerned.
