Yes. See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/l4A9> on implementation of
custom handlers.

This FAQ also makes brief reference to the extend.py mechanism. If the
lists/LISTNAME/ directory contains an extend.py module that defines an
extend() function, this function is called with the list as argument
whenever a list is instantiated.

See the end of the definition of the MailList.__init__() method in
Mailman/MailList.py for more on this.
