No, Mailman will not /require/ the use of its NNTP server, just like today it
does not require the use of Pipermail.  It'll be available for anybody who
wants an easy, turnkey solution, which actually is probably the majority of
users.  But if you don't want it, or want to roll you're own, you will of
course be welcome to.
