Mikhail, mailman-users is not the best place to have technical  
discussions about developing Mailman.  Use mailman-developers instead  
and we can talk about your ideas, the design, implementation  
strategies, etc.

This is one of the biggest reasons why I moved the code to the Bazaar  
VCS.  I'd really like to see a rich variety of live branches out  
there, with patches, new features and so on.  It should be easy to  
keep them up-to-date, to be living implemented proofs of the code, and  
to be much more easily merged into the trunk.  Patches sitting in a  
tracker are like dead code.
