This is along the exact same lines that I was talking about in my 
previous post.

Ok...  Now you are starting to make me think that there are places in 
the Mailman code that will look for custom code (in a separate file that 
is called if it exists?) that can be executed to do things like this. 
Is this the case?

If this is not currently the case, how difficult would it be (and would 
it be worth while) calling a ""stub function in separate files that 
would allow users to run their own custom ""translation code with out 
having to get in to the main Mailman code?
